Pretty crazy.

Can’t quite tell from the article if it was in lieu of hard manual labor or in addition to - I guess if I had the choice I’d rather slave away playing WOW.

A multi-layer pump and dump scheme with 300+ inmates would be way more profitable for those running that Chinese prison, but hey, that’s the spirit.
