PRESS RELEASE: Dignity For Incarcerated Workers

Only 55 percent of formerly incarcerated individuals report earnings in their first year out of prison and 60 percent have debt incurred through the criminal justice system. A change in the pay scale would only dignify the work that incarcerated individuals complete during their sentences, but would also promote saving money to help better position them to succeed upon reentry. 

#cut50 is joined in their support by other criminal justice organizations, including the Anti-Recidivism Coalition, Legal Services for Prisoners with Children (LSPC) / All of Us or None (AOUON), State Building & Construction Trades Council of California (SBCTCC), Western Center on Law and Poverty and Young Women’s Freedom Center.

More information about #cut50’s work on California policy can be found here.
