Yes, I do believe that some prison inmates should be made to work. There is nothing at all wrong with having inmates work in the laundry or kitchen inside the prison. Some prisons grow their own vegetables and use inmates as farmhands. If we really want to use prisons for rehabilitation, then we need to provide opportunities for prisoners to learn trades, such as auto mechanics, carpentry, and other fields.

There are advantages to prison labor. It keeps the inmates busy, and sometimes they actually learn a trade, so they may have an honest life later. I disagree when inmates are paid a pittance, or taking catalog orders over the phone and things like that where people on the outside have contact with them.

  i agree with #3, they should be treated like humans, and if they really want the prison to be a rehabilation place for them, they will provide opportunites so the prisoners can learn to better themselves.
