covid19, prisoner support fundraiser in the UK
"Average wages in prison are £6 per week and phone calls are extremely expensive. Many people inside simply won't be able to afford extra calls to family in the absence of visits.
In addition to this, scarcity will effect those in prison immensely. For people without access to money to purchase extra food and healthcare/sanitary items, this will result in serious hardship and even an increased risk of contamination."

Under capitalism, businesses are supposed to be allowed to fail if they have not adequately planned for conditions. If they are never allowed to do so, you are no longer treating capitalism as an economic system. It is now your political system. It is now your state religion.
