    Most prisoners would prefer a job, even an exploitative one, to enforced idleness and complete absence of income.  I think it could make sense to ban for-profit entities, but there is no doubt that would reduce the number of prisoners who could participate.  More jobs for the rest of us, but a loss to the prisoners.
