California’s Prison Covid-19 Outbreak Isn’t Behind Its Firefighter Shortage

Description (Dublin Core)

California, one of the most fire prone states in the nation, still relies on prisoners as firefighters. With a particularly bad fire season and a viral pandemic still raging through the country they find themselves in a precarious situation.

In California over three hundred of their prison labor firefighters have been released since July. This article explains more of the details.
