Do inmates receive pay for work performed during incarceration?
Those inmates having institutional job assignments are paid up to $20 per month. A very limited number of inmates having special skills and/or assigned to special projects may receive slightly more. Additionally, inmates assigned to Oklahoma Correctional Industries (OCI) are paid slightly more. The reasoning behind paying inmates is two fold: it serves as an incentive to perform well and it ensures that the inmate has money to purchase personal hygiene items of their choice from the canteen.
