Another great idea from one of the Obama administration's certified geniuses - this one courtesy of Alan Kruger, the newly-appointed chairman of Obama's Council of Economic Advisers.
So, how does this work, exactly? If a prisoner goes on strike, what do you do? Throw him in jail? I mean, he's already in there. Or would he have the right to strike? Would the warden and his staff then have to step in and make license plates?
Completely irrelevant to the story, but this guy Krueger looks a lot like the teacher of my high school aviation class. I believe the guy eventually got fired for getting drunk and buzzing residential areas at night.
