holy shit I knew about NYC's Hart Island being used as a burial ground for diseased Rikers Island prisoners, but I didn't know they were forcing the prisoners to do the burying labor

This might be even more egregious than California forcing prisoners to work as unpaid firefighters

@volt4ire I believe there was a recent John Oliver segment where they showed a boy working for a pittance to build a prison where he would soon be jailed himself. Oh, found it, it was in India.
