Work in prison: social control, penal policies and ambivalences Trabalho no cárcere: controle social, políticas penais e ambivalências

Abstract

The article reveals the functionality of the entrepreneurial ideology present in the political formulation of access to work in prison. It is understood that this type of work also suffers the impacts of the new morphology of work. It is argued that mass incarceration is a result of the penal state. It also considers that access to penal labor policies in prison is constituted by contradictions and expropriations of a neoliberal nature. The study concludes that access minimizes the life of the individual deprived of liberty and hides the expropriations that interest capital, thus evidencing the neoliberal logic.
