Excerpt from a letter received by a prisoner 9/6/18, concerning conditions at Dodge Correctional:
“You must work at DCI to stay there. Because of this, they feel as if they may pay inmates at lower rates..To make matters worse, all the prices have been raised on our canteen items. If this wasn’t bad enough, DCI’s kitchen supervisor Pam tries to save the institution money by serving smaller portions and using half spoiled food, just for a personal benefit of a pay bonus. All the best of the food is eaten by facility staff members either in the kitchen staff office of the break room. All this is being used to exploit the inmates.”
Conditions in the Wisconsin prison system need to change.
