Couldn't these people be used productively to produce products in the market that China does only because we can't compete? Not slave labor, but reward these prisoners in some way, make them productive, teach them trade which makes them employable upon release. Teaches work ethic. Also keeps China out of our backyard. This income from these products could support the penal system instead of taxpayers. What do you think?

I agree but, The cleaning, etc. only helps sustain the prison system they are in. It does nothing for the taxpayer that supports them. Wouldn't some extra work be appropriate as restitution for fines, court costs, etc. that would contribute?
