Other inmates are not at all pleased by the wages, particularly considering the incredible hazards of the job. La’Sonya Edwards, an inmate who fights fires in southern California, told the New York Times in August that she makes around $500 per year in camp, plus an extra few hundred for working on the fire line. The salary of a full time civilian fighter starts at around $40,000.

You know the old joke: How do you make a killing on Wall Street and never risk a loss? Easy—use other people’s money. Jamie Dimon and his underlings at JPMorgan Chase have perfected this dark art at America’s largest bank, which boasts a balance sheet one-eighth the size of the entire US economy.
This fall we invite you to host a Move to Amend houseparty for Halloween (or any other day)!
