California spends an average of $49,000 per year to ‪#‎INCARCERATE‬ one person. By comparison, a ‪#‎minimumwage‬ salary amounts to less than $20,000 a year before taxes, and California only spends just over $9,000 per ‪#‎publicschoolstudent‬ per academic year, which is below the national average. This prison figure does not include the price of specialized mental health units or security housing units — more restrictive facilities where those incarcerated are closely supervised — which can cost over $100,000 per prisoner per year. Keeping these people in prison in California alone costs taxpayers more than $7 billion dollars a year. (The price of sentencing people to prison via aljazeera)
