PRISON LABOR IN MINNESOTA

Filiberto Nolasco Gomez is an investigative journalist and Editor of Workday Minnesota. His work focuses on workers and their experiences throughout the state with a particular focus on the immigration, trade union and inmate laborers. Filiberto has published a two part series in Workday Minnesota revealing the extent, conditions, and experiencers of prison labor in our state. He has found that mostly men of color make common products while in prison for less than 50 cents an hour. Come and discuss how prison labor schemes and practices are the everyday legacies of slavery.​
