    Good question. You have a union don't you? It lobbies the legislature doesn't it?

    CCA in most areas start COs in the $7.50 to $10 an hour range.
    Our union is a joke. Every facility in the state has a different union. It's pointless.

    IMHO I don't think the state or Fed. govt. should allow private prisons. Their pay sucks in most places. Lets not forget about the almost non-existent background checks. And some of them are so far from professional that it isn't funny. From most of my I/M's that have done time at a private say that the I/M's run it. Now I know this is true most everywhere because of numbers i.e. I/M's to officer ratio. But when I hear that the staff is letting the I/M's do whatever they want it makes me sick.

    True but, that institution is not typical of CCA. The reason salaries are so high at CCA Leavenworth is because they have a contract with the US Marshals Service. Federal law requires that contractors for the federal government pay the prevailing wage for the local area.
    Hell if that's prevailing wage in the area, then how come 1 mile down the road I'm making 7 bucks less an hour?

    That sounds like inmates in the typical federal prison.

    All private owned prisons suck. they are so soft, it's like a vaction. Probably 99.5% of their adminstration has no corrections experience.

    One of the CCAs out in AZ fired everyone one day and two days later sent them letters offering them their jobs back at highly reduced pay. Great job security.

    Wardens from CCA out here are all former BOP wardens I have known from one place or another. CCA is corrupt.
