Lower Bucks For Change started this petition to Bucks County Commissioners and

In Pennsylvania, the average wage for incarcerated people is $.42. The average income in Bucks Correctional Facility is approximately $4 a day. The oppressively low wage structure of our jails across the country is a legacy of slavery, the convict-leasing system, and the societal undervaluing of the labor of our most marginalized people. People need money for when they're released to lower recidivism rates and to afford the inflated cost of basic necessities in jail.

Sign this petition to tell the Commissioners that we need to harmonize the wage of incarcerated people with the Pennsylvania minimum wage and remove Bucks County from the list of places that practices this deeply racist and cruel policy.
