Close the 13th Amendment Slavery loophole

This petition had 11 supporters

Slavery in the US has not been abolished as the 13th amendment has an exception clause within it that allows slavery as punishment for crimes. This could be the reason that the USA has the worlds largest prison population and why Corrections Corporation of America offered cash to take over state prisons. The majority of the enslaved are enslaved for non-violent so called drug crimes but that is not what this petition is about. In addition to closing the slavery loophole in the Constitution, all prisoners who work should be paid the federal minimum wage so that they may be able to contribute financially to their families or at least remove some of the burden from their family in assisting them. We must end this evil institution now! We need a minimum 25,000 signatures by Feburary 8th!!!
