15% of all proceeds are donated to Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC), a prisoner-led section of the Industrial Workers of the World.
"As incarcerated workers, we are some of the most exploited workers in the country. There is no minimum wage for prison labor. The average wage is 20 cents an hour, with some states not paying a wage at all. Up to 80% of wages can be withheld by prison officials. There are very few safety regulations and no worker's compensation for injury on the job. While in prison, we try to earn money to support our families, ourselves, and pay victim restitution yet these wages prevent us from that. We believe that as workers we are guaranteed the same protections and wages as other workers.
We are working to abolish prison slavery and this system that does not correct anyone or make our communities safer."
