    I wonder if they let arsonists fight fires.
    It would be an endless loop. The arsonist would light a fire, go to jail , fight the fire, then light another fire, fight that fire, etc. etc. etc.

    America’s economy is driven by mass incarcerating its citizens, so it’s no shock that they can’t work as a fire fighter when they’ve served their time.

    I don't know about most places but the town I live in and all the surrounding areas all the firefighters are volunteers and don't get anything at all besides knowing they helped someone. To get more time served plus some money for prison I think that's being nice. And it sounds like they still have the option to do it

    they should get a bit more, maybe 4-5$ per hour, but the money should be put into an account that they can't touch until they are released. by doing so they will be creating a safety net for then they get released.
