MENTORS HELP OFFENDERS SUCCEED IN MANY WAYS
Over the past 15 years the trend for many large companies and major corporations has been to move jobs off shore in order to keep employment costs low and productivity high. With our private industry partnership opportunities and programs, companies can now do both – AND keep these valuable jobs in America.
Many people understand inmates have jobs, but most people don’t realize the variety of products and services they actually provide and the byzantine pay system in place for many prison jobs. It’s not just license plates anymore: Prisoners operate call centers, build office furniture, construct houses, create works of art and mix the paint used on highways.
The Ellsworth Correctional Facility (ECF) partners with two (2) different classes of private industry employment – prison based and non-prison based.
Prison based private industry employment is located inside the secure perimeter of ECF, whereas non-prison based private industry employment is found outside the secure perimeter of ECF in the private sector.
In either instance of private industry employment, offenders are required to pay the following deductions from their gross wages.
