There are only a few ways to increase profit including cutting costs, selling more product, or driving prices up. The most effective way to cut cost. At a prison in Youngstown one former guard said, two-thirds of his colleagues and they were hired at $1300 less than their government counterparts. That prison was home to the 2nd largest inmate paying lawsuit in American
The chance of her name being drawn is very slim compare to those of us who live in the Seam. Not impossible, but slim. And even though the rules were set up by the Capitol, not the districts, certainly not Madge's family, it's hard not to resent those who don't have to sign up for the tesserae.” The tesserae make the poor in District 12 more vulnerable during the reaping (that is, the selection of the tributes).
In “Fact Checker: Clinton’s claim that illegal immigrants pay more taxes than some corporations,” Glenn Kessler, writer for The Washington Post, says that Clinton claims that “illegal immigrants in New York pay more taxes than some of the biggest corporations New York”(Hillary Clinton). This is true if you are taking illegal immigrants as a group and not each individual person; this comparison is not accurate though because it like comparing apples and bananas. Also, the numbers being taken into account are only state, local, and property taxes which excludes federal taxes (Kessler, 2). Even though big companies can find ways to get out of paying a lot of federal taxes, they still pay a ton of money into state, local, and property, which forces them to pay for each individual property they own. So when you compare a whole group of people to one company, yes, the group would be paying more, but that is an unrealistic comparison to make.
There is a higher poverty percentage rate among black people than any other race, which is why they are more likely to be accused of a crime (kff.org). They believe that those who are poor are more likely to commit crimes because of the fact poverty hurts our ability to make decisions on school, finances and life (Thompson, 2013). There were other men outside searching for the twins, but it never occurred to them that one of the men could have been the culprit except for Robbie, as he was the only one accused. While Robbie was in prison, Cecilia wrote to him that “I’m beginning to understand the snobbery that lay behind their stupidity” (McEwan, 117) She believed that her parents were to believed he raped Lola because of his social status.
Illegal immigration has helped in the nation’s economic growth by enabling businesses to prosper as the illegal immigrants have provided cheap labor and long hours of hard work. Businesses benefit from illegal immigration by saving a large amount of money since they are not providing insurance both medical and retirement plans for their illegal workers. This results in a lower production cost for the companies and lower prices of goods and services for everyone. Although illegal immigrants may not contribute directly to the economy of the nation in the
Most of them also do not even receive back their taxes, they just pay them. The cost of deporting all of them would be too immense. There are millions of undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.A., it would be almost impossible to deport every single one of them. The cost of deporting them would be super large and it would almost be a waste of money. People are overlooking all the benefits that illegal immigrants have and are worrying too much about the small number of criminal immigrants
Why the Criminal Justice System Is Not Fair The Criminal Justice System is not fair. If you are a man, you are more expected to commit a crime rather than a female. There is a high range of incarceration rates depending on race. Depending on your age, you are worth more money. Should you die as an adult rather than a child, your family would easily receive money in compensation.
Do Rich People Get Off Easier When They Break The Law? There has always been arguments over the thought of people with money getting away with breaking the laws easier. In every justice system there are things that seem unfair to some. Wealthy people have the money to buy better options to win their cases than people without money.
A case involving the death penalty is $1.26 million, while one without costs $740,000. (“Death Penalty”) While one might think it is cheaper to execute someone than to house, feed and take care of them for the rest of their life, it is not. The death sentence costs at least 18 times as much as a sentence of life without parole would cost. (“California Affirms Death”)There are many costs that make a death sentence far more expensive than a sentence of life without parole.
Another example of judicial inequality in parity between legal treatments of citizens is the Crack Cocaine Mandatory Minimum Sentences. Before 2010, there were much stricter mandatory minimum sentences when someone was convicted of a crime involving crack cocaine versus powder cocaine. Crack cocaine is much cheaper to produce and buy than powder cocaine, and thus crack cocaine offenders were more likely to be poor and black, while powder cocaine offenders were more often more affluent and white. Thus a disproportionate number of blacks were imprisoned
The costs of capital murder trials are more expensive than other murder trials for many of reasons. Often in murder trials where the death penalty is not being sought, the case never goes to trial and the offender pleads to a lesser degree of murder such as second degree murder or manslaughter. Depending on the location in the country, a prosecutor may be swayed politically or by the victim’s family to agree to life in prison without the possibility of parole. What makes a capital murder trial so expensive is “the high cost of crime scene investigations, pretrial preparations and motions, expert witness investigations, jury selection, and heightened death row security and maintenance costs” (Schmalleger & Smykla, 2015, p. 493). The overall
Prior to the introduction to crack, cocaine and herion were more expensive drugs. The drug users were people who could afford the more expensive drugs. When the drugs became less expensive, example crack, people were not making as much money being a crack dealer as they did compared to the late 80’s. Those kingpins were going to prison or dying and the younger generation didn’t feel like the minimal amouts they could make or killing someone over it was worth the jail time. So even though the crime rate fell due to this, it was nothing in comparison to the percentage that drugs caused the crime to increase in prior
In the United States there are more people incarcerated than any other nation in the world. Recently, many states have taken drastic steps allowing private companies to buy prisons and operate them as profitable businesses. The business models of these companies relies on a high incarceration rate and the ability to operate at a very low cost. This could put a large portion of the prison population at serious risk of having their safety put behind the revenue they earn. Even though these for-profit prisons show no evidence of saving the federal government any money, and have dubious health and safety records, some politicians still push for legislation that is good for private prison companies.
