12) How many prisoners receive more than $1.00 per hour for their work?
13) Are prisoners allowed to take toilet breaks during work hours?
14) Are prisoners provided with meal breaks during work hours?
15) Can prisoners call in sick to work?
16) What are the consequences if a prisoner chooses not to work?

SECTION 2)
If possible, I would like to know the following information on a per prison basis:
17) The total number of prisoners who are housed in each prison.
18) The total number of prisoners who are work in prisons but are not involved in release to work programmers, per prison.
19) The total number of prisoners who are involved in release to work programmers, per prison.
20) The total number of prisoners who have refused to work, for each prison.
21) The total number of prisoners who have received some form of sanction for refusal to work, for each prison.
22) The average rate of pay for prisoners, for each prison.

So I have a view of the percentages of the population.

Yours faithfully,

Will Howard
