I mean, if we're going to keep them, we should at least do something with them.
Too close to slave labor for my liking.
Plus you have to watch out for the fact that who goes to prison for what is entirely up to who's in charge. A precedent can come back and bite you in the ass later on even if it does nothing today. Imagine you set the work enforcement for prisoners, then some racist gets in charge. Hello 18th century Mk2.

Well America already makes a lot of money from the labour of it's prison population, they actually make a lot of military equipment.

Proven murderers. If you would place the punishment of the guilty before the protection of the innocent, something is very wrong. Even then, couldn't we give the jobs they would do by forced labor to the workforce at large? There's an unemployment problem after all.

Idea: Make it illegal to be unemployed. Problem bums? You jealous Europe? You mad humanitarians?

I agree. I'm confused why you brought that up at all.

I am not well informed on this topic and cannot reasonably debate it with you.

Simple - not enough people have jobs. Why give jobs to imprisoned convicts when someone could earn a straight living with the jobs they'd be doing?

This is just the result of an artist and an expert brainstorming what it might look like. The only moderately accurate part according to them is that tail section, since that is the only portion that survived.

Here is the blog from whence that sketch originated: http://cencio4.wordpress.com/

For the same reason the Dutch Minister of Employment shouldn't just stop Romanians from coming in and picking our strawberries and expect Dutch unemployed people to take over.
Would you prefer making license plates against minimum wage over unemployment benefits?

Yeah of course immigrants are criminals and only exist to be exploited as cheap labour.


What the hell, Didero?

I meant that it's all well and good to say that local unemployed people should do that work, but those unemployed may not want to do the work.

My example referred to the practise of Eastern-Europeans coming over here to pick strawberries and assorted fruits, all entirely legally. The Minister of Employment wants to block Romanians from coming here, since Romania isn't part of the EU, and he is of the opinion the locals should pick the strawberries. But the farmers growing the strawberries can't find enough Dutch unemployed to replace the Romanians.
