The private prison industry brings millions of dollars in revenue every year and is continuing to grow at a rapid rate. Private prisons companies cut costs and use unethical tactics that affect the livelihood and well-being of their prisoners, which makes these tactics unethical and inhumane. For example, instead of spending more money towards better living conditions for the prisoners or paying them fair wages towards the labor they do on a daily basis private prisons use their revenue towards aspects they feel will help their company grow, such as expansion and lobbying. This investigation expands upon the existing literature by examining when private prisons spend money towards certain aspects like lobbying contributions to politicians and building a prison in a high population of Black people with the assumption they will receive a high amount of prisons by doing so, and seeing how it effects the average number of prisoners within that year. As a result we look towards seeing what unethical areas private prison companies use in order to create more revenue and increase the prison population.
