Several pictures have emerged of orange-clad men setting up for the inauguration of incoming Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs on Monday. Now, some shocking reports have emerged about who these men really were.
Jimmy Jenkins, a reporter for AZ Central, revealed that these workers were not ordinary workers; their orange jumpsuits suggest they were convicts hired to set up the inauguration and then hustled out before the guests arrived.
A tipster shared these pictures with me. Apparently prison labor was used to set up the inauguration of Arizona’s new governor today at the state capitol in Phoenix. The incarcerated workers were hurried away from the event as volunteers and staff arrived. pic.twitter.com/087pGf6pad
Essentially, these incarcerated men were used by the state of Arizona to set up an event for Democrats and their allies before being swiftly removed.
Prisoners are being exploited and used as slave labor instead of being hired and paid fairly for their work by the Hobbs administration.
The entire spectacle raises serious questions about Hobbs’ administration. Is she going to run an administration that cares about the well-being of Arizona’s citizens or will she run an administration that treats the job like a joke and uses people as cheap labor?
