This chapter presents three excerpts from a prisoners' newspaper, The Fire Inside, a publication of the California Coalition for Women Prisoners. The articles lay out a critique of labor conditions inside the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla. The first article focuses on prison labor as a form of slavery in the new millennium, the second on prison labor hierarchy, and the third on prison labor at the Prison Industry Authority, the state agency operating California's prison industries.
