The value of inmate work for public /intra-agency work projects was figured at $8.23 per hour for fiscal year 1995-96 as opposed to $4.25 per hour for the previous fiscal years. The base hourly value was determined from the Wage Summary Report for Employment Services Job Openings, prepared by the Department of Labor and Employment Security. The hourly wage includes benefits for Social Security, retirement, health and basic life insurance. (Ken Snover, Adult Services, Department of Corrections). Fiscal Year 1995-96 data for Charts 5-2 and 5-3 is from "Community Work Squads Earnings and Value Added/Cost Savings Report," dated August 23, 1996.
