This video shows the extent the corporate world invests in keeping the prison system expanding and why. Though this was an America report, this is also a growing industry in the UK with the government trying hard to get more corporate bodies to use prison labour as a cheap form of slave labour. In a corporate world, if it is profitable to keep people in prison the system will put greater resources behind that goal of getting more people behind bars. The usual right-wing cry of "tough on crime", longer mandatory sentences, all point to more people behind bars, more captive cheap labour. Ah well, that's capitalism for you.
