My wife used to run the corporate McDonald’s restaurants as the executive director in Arizona for almost a decade. The goal of every one of her stores was to create return business. McDonalds would invest in playland equipment and dine in furniture, all designed to make the restaurants a desirable place to return to. The business principle is called “Return on Investment”. An now, our prisons are being organized along the same business principle.
The present privatized prison system operates on the same principle and it is quite effective. The average person is sentenced from 5-7 years in prison. There is no rehabilitation, only the prison life which produces a more hardened criminal. When the convict is released, they find it virtually impossible to get a job because of their ex-con label. Within three years of release from prison, 70% of all prisoners return. Can you imagine if every restaurant had a 70% return rate from its customers? If my wife could have enjoyed these kinds of numbers, she would have been the executive of the year, each and every year.
