I think this is a great program. The rest of the U.S.could learn from this. The workers from the correctional facility are actually helping themselves by learning a trade and building a work ethic. Now when the inmates are released back into society they have more of a fighting chance to make something of themselves and contribute to society instead of being a drain on it. I would actually like to see it go a step further and maybe add some other types of work, such as warehouse workers, or maybe even a cattle ranch. This way the inmates have more of an opportunity to find employment in the field that they desire.
