Mass graves being dug by imprisoned people in NYC, Fck Prison

The office of Mayor Bill de Blasio has confirmed that imprisoned people at Rikers Island are being offered $6/hour to dig mass graves on Hart Island, which is a public cemetery owned by NYC. They’ve been having imprisoned people digging graves there already, but the pay increase is new. The spokesperson says it’s not COVID-19 related, but that space was designated as a worst-case scenario plan in the event of a plague in 2008.
