Episode 142: 85 more U.S. manufacturing jobs lost to prison slave labor and this is only the beginning…

Join co-hosts Tim Grady and Lew Weiss as they continue to examine the relationship between prison slave labor systems protected by state or federal governments that compete with U.S. manufacturers which have stolen American taxpayers jobs and forced plant layoffs or closures. Hear from guest Michael Mansh, president of Pennsylvania Apparel LLC who used to have a plant in Kentucky which they shut down after Federal Prison Industries pulled away government apparel contracts, wiping out 85 taxpayer jobs. Unicor and state prison systems continue to take work away using unfair competitive bidding that few manufacturers want to take issue with for fear of losing other government jobs.
