Wage Theft, Bail Reform, and the US Prison System

Talking points

White collar wage theft by companies of employees money is greater than theft.

Over 60% of incarcerated individuals make less than $12,000/year.

Bail reform reduces crime where it’s implemented.

The for-profit bail system incarcerates impoverished people who can’t pay bill, fines, or fees and puts them to work to generate 11.6 billion dollars worth of products/services.
