Mass Incarceration is a Labor Issue



Only 3 left in stock

This is a print that I made for the Justseeds installation in Milwuakee based around Labor Issues. An incarcerated woman in a Department of Corrections uniform sews while in a scene below her a woman interviews for a job. The tethered butterflies symbolize a yearning for freedom for the woman above, while the bars along the bottom represent the barriers which exist for people who seek employment once released from prison.

The text reads:

Mass incarceration is a labor issue. Put an end to the war on drugs.

While incarcerated people can be paid as little as 23 cents per hour to work for private corporations.

Once released, ex felons face discrimination when seeking employment and social services.
