Question Questions about jobs while in prison for inmates

What jobs pay the most for the inmates in Ohio prisons? Any ideas on which prisons have the better paying jobs?

I'm not familiar with Ohio DRC.....but I thought that a prison industry, if Ohio had one, would most likely be the best pay. What I found was Ohio Penal Industries. Pay there ranges from .23 cents per hour for a Standard Level 1 all the up to Incentive Level 9, which pays 1.35 per hour:

https://drc.ohio.gov/Portals/0/Policies/DRC%20Policies/25-OPI-11%20Apr%202019.pdf

I would think that 1.35 is pretty darned good for a prison job.

Thank you for finding that information out. My boyfriend was asking me and I could not find anything online to tell him and knew someone on here might either know something or know how to find the information out.

There may be specific jobs that require an inmate to be skilled (electrician, plumber, carpenter, teacher, other) that will pay decent. I couldn't locate ODRC's policies & procedures....I would think they would have a "policy" on jobs / pay. Some DOC's post their Policies & Procedures, some don't.
