    Total bullshit. They are people who needed jobs. And we didn't go everyday, we got 14 days off per month not counting vacations and voluntary overtime.

    Alright settle down. Lol. I love orange is the new black.

    What was it like? Did you interact? Ever been violent? Or attacked? Spit on? Was it a max prison with murderers and rapists?

    Orange is the new black is a close representation on the prison I worked at although we had males. As far as con behavior.

    Working at a marina in Florida. It was hot and scraping barnacles off boat bottoms wasn't very challenging.

    I had a job making roof trusses that was also hot and boring. A few got delivered with pop-tops and bottle caps that just happened to get pressed-in along with the nail strips. LOL... BUT -- one day, I went to office for something and the folks were all yelling at each other about calculations for the wood cuts and angles and loads. Being a sophomore in College, I brought in my HP calculator with all the equations and stuff and taught them how to "automate" the process. Got me out of "hard labor" for the rest of the summer.

    bet that was nasty. However, you should see the womens restroom in the prison visitation centers where we have their man locked up and they get have him home at night! The artful mastery of the tampon and feces filled diaper had came to a new level.

    That’s sort of the way I felt about my government job that was not challenging. It taught me quickly what I don’t want- never to work for the govt. lol
