Default Mike Bloomberg Exploited Prison Labor

Mike Bloomberg Exploited Prison Labor to Make 2020 Presidential Campaign Phone Calls

"FORMER NEW YORK CITY mayor and multibillionaire Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg used prison labor to make campaign calls. Through a third-party vendor, the Mike Bloomberg 2020 campaign contracted New Jersey-based call center company ProCom, which runs calls centers in New Jersey and Oklahoma. Two of the call centers in Oklahoma are operated out of state prisons. In at least one of the two prisons, incarcerated people were contracted to make calls on behalf of the Bloomberg campaign.

According to a source, who asked for anonymity for fear of retribution, people incarcerated at the Dr. Eddie Warrior Correctional Center, a minimum-security women’s prison with a capacity of more than 900, were making calls to California on behalf of Bloomberg. The people were required to end their calls by disclosing that the calls were paid for by the Bloomberg campaign. They did not disclose, however, that they were calling from behind bars."

I find ALL campaign calls to be disgusting regardless who makes them or who pays for them.

Presidential Candidate Mike Bloomberg is responsible for the NYPD's "stop and frisk" policing program, so I put him in the same category with that other overzealous NYC Mayor, Rudy Giuliani.

They are all politicians, but some are definitely more frightening than others. They tell us they are keeping us safe, yes, safe from everyone except the politicians.

And cheap labour is one of the reasons why the Government, judicial system, FBI, police departments and most private lawyers are so corrupt. And why most americans are being incarcerated. This is what you call the working poor.
