Emails reveal Michigan prisoners regularly served maggot-ridden food, forced to engage in sexual acts for food
Seven months after hiring an outside contractor to feed prisoners in state prisons, Michigan officials are considering scrapping the contract over serious problems ranging from maggots in the food to private contract employees abusing and having sex with prisoners.
According to emails acquired by the Detroit Free Press under the Michigan’s Freedom of Information Act, state officials are at their “wit’s end,” over the complete failure of the Aramark Correctional Services of Philadelphia to control their employees and fulfill the terms of their contract.
In an attempt to save $12 million annually, Michigan outsourced food services to Aramark starting in January of this year, only to receive reports of maggots in the food, unclean kitchens,  food shortages causing increased tensions with the prisoners, as well as Aramark employees smuggling in contraband and assaulting inmates.
One Aramark food service director showed up for work drunk and failed a Breathalyzer test while another was caught trying to smuggle marijuana into the prison.
“I’m at my wit’s end,” Kevin Weissenborn, the Michigan Department of Corrections manager in charge of overseeing Aramark’s contract, wrote to one prison warden in March.
“I know how you feel,” replied Warden Heidi Washington of the Charles E. Egeler Reception & Guidance Center in Jackson. “At first I felt like Lansing thought I was just being too difficult and too demanding because I was always complaining. However, I think everyone knows that’s not the case.”
Although Aramark only employs 300 workers in Michigan’s prisons, 74 Aramark workers have been banned from prison property for various infractions in just six months.
Aramark was fined $98,000 in March for repeated contract violations such as running out of food and making improper substitutions for required menu items.
Gov. Rick Snyder (R) is now considering scrapping the $145-million, three-year contract before the summer heat intensifies, worried over prison unrest.
After reading reports of maggots in the food at two prisons, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardvill (R-Monroe) called for new bids from other companies.
“It doesn’t matter if they’re prisoners or who they are, people don’t deserve that type of treatment,” Richardville said.
Aramark officials have released a statement claiming they believe many of the complaints stem from prison officials unhappy with outsourcing jobs at the expense of state Corrections Department workers.

Every single time we try to save the taxpayers money by contracting, it only ends up costing the taxpayers more.

This shit makes me sick to my stomach. Where the fuck is the justice?

WinCo is an employee owned grocery chain which pays its 15,000 workers at least $11/hour, offers health and dental insurance-even for part-time staff, and invests 20% of an employee’s salary into a pension which has turned 400 cashiers and clerks into millionaires. They are Wal-Mart’s worst nightmare.

i keep thinking about this moment it’s so important. 
yeah, you could absolutely write off simon’s shell-shocked reverence here as part of the supposed revelation that kieren is the first risen, but i think it’s more than that. i think even more it’s about what’s actually happening between them, which is:
1) he did the makeup and the contacts and the awkward family lunch, all after laying it on the line for kieren, that he wasn’t trying to convert him, or trick him, that he really would do whatever kieren asked of him, and here is kieren in silent apology telling him he did good, he did right, but he was wrong to ask in the first place
2) up until this point, simon’s seen kieren stand up to him, but only in the way that denies him or refuses his supposed missions or morals about the undead. now, simon’s seen kieren stand up for himself, to other people, but in a way that affirms his — kieren’s — own experience as a person (living or dead or undead) as valid, as important, as not a joke, or a biblical pawn, but as his own life. 
3) this is probably literally the most simultaneously innocent and intimate thing that has ever happened in simon’s life, tbh. jesus christ when do you think was the last time anybody looked at simon monroe like that. more importantly, when was the last time anybody touched simon monroe like that.
