We were passing through town today, and as I came around the bend on 35 South, I saw orange jumpsuits. I assumed it was a routine litter pickup, but the state has the prisoners maintaining the grass now too! Why pay all that overtime for union workers to earn $50/ hour mowing grass when prisoners do it for free? Some were weed whacking, others mowing the grass, and they all seemed happy to get out of jail for the day. As a taxpayer, I was very happy to see the prisoners earning their keep and being productive in society.
