BCFC Group Seeks to Curb Inmate Labor during Pandemic

Mon, May 04, 2020 1:37 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

With the vast numbers of unemployed Americans mounting (over 30 million as of May 1st), the Business Coalition for Fair Competition (BCFC), which CIRT is a founding member, has called upon Attorney General William P. Barr to curtail the federal government corporation operating under the trade name UNICOR. This program uses federal inmates to produce goods and services that generate annually more than $483 million.  But more important, it is a mandatory source of federal supply for these goods and services, meaning it is a sole source monopoly.  Under normal circumstances, private business could forego these opportunities and dollars, but the country is far from being in normal times.  Every dollar in the private sector is vital in saving a private sector job.  [Details see Letter to Attorney General Barr].
