Prices go up, pay does not
A client's take on a price hike: "The vendor who provides MDOC prisoners with commissary items, The Keefe Co., have just raised prices on the majority of all items on the store and securepack lists. Prisoners have not had a pay increase in decades but the prices we must pay for commissary items continue to increase annually. This places a hardship on prisoner's and their families. What, if anything, can be done about this?? We pay significantly more for store items than people who are not incarcerated pay for the same items. Can anything be done about this??"
