All inmates will maintain a regular job assignment. Institution job assignments are controlled through a Performance Pay System, which provides monetary payment for work. Federal Prison Industries (UNICOR) has a separate pay scale.
Initial job assignments are made by the A&O Unit Team. These assignments are based on institution needs along with information submitted by the inmate to the Unit Team. Once assigned to a job, inmates will remain assigned to that job for a mandatory 90-day period. Subsequent job changes must be approved by the Unit Team.
Institutional maintenance jobs are usually the first assignments an inmate receives. This includes work in Food Service, Unit Orderly or Maintenance.
