Dystopia Now: Hickman’s Eggs, Mass Incarceration, and the Matrix of Privilege
A SHORT, THICK DOC BY KERRY STEWART LENGEL
Are Hickman’s Eggs the Fruits of Slave Labor?
From its genesis in a Glendale chicken coop, Hickman’s Family Farms has grown to become the largest industrial egg producer in the Southwest. Ever since 1995, however, the company’s growth has been subsidized by the government in the form of inmate labor, provided by the Arizona Department of Corrections at a fraction of the minimum wage. Is this a “win-win” deal for free market market capitalism … or is it the latest incarnation of slavery and Jim Crow?
