My poster will be framed around my research paper regarding the prison wage gap, and will offer statistics, excerpts from my work, and visuals such as graphs and pictures. Through my presentation, the audience will learn about what the label “Made in America,” means, the role mass incarceration plays in the oppression of those labeled “criminal,” and the importance of fair wages and education in American prisons to reverse the cycle of poverty, oppression, and legal discrimination.
