    My google fu is off tonight. Can only find US sources.
    Is there monetary compensation for prisoners in your country?

    Hrrmmm, that's a good question but the answer only matters if we find out why. Do most countries not pay? If so, I'm sure the USA pays more due to our high prison rate and then paying anything will be a lot. Do most countries pay the same? Then its our high prison rate alone?

    What I meant was...who cares if we spend more. We aren't broke poors like the rest of the world that have to deal with criminals running free because they can't afford to enforce the law.

    I really didn’t find anything with general comparisons, so I just decided to look up by country. It’s not easy to find anything.

    First example, Japan. Found this article, claims they get ¥5000 ($40/mo), put aside for when they’re out of the system.
    What killers can expect in Japanese prisons

    Israel
    I can’t find any information beyond the Palestinians paying Palestinian prisoners in Israeli prisons.
    PA doubles pay-for-slay salary to murderer of 3 Israeli teenagers

    Russia

    Then I got lazy and stopped.

    I wouldn't mind prisoners low pay if a portion went to commissary and the products they made were solely for public use like school supplies. Nearly all NY state desks and chairs in schools are made by prisoners, or at least they were when I was growing up. But today prisons enter into contracts with corporations to have prisoners make things for them which they then sell. That's little better than slavery.

    I found an article from 2014 for Germany.

    Depending on the kind of work between 130$ and 325$ if you're still sitting in for your sentence (e.g. doing 2 years).

    If you are too dangerous to be set free, after doing your sentence, you can actually earn more, for some juristical reason, then it's between 330 and 600$. rounded estimates based on Euro to USD.

    You can earn some extra money on top of that. There, the individual states make the rules.

    All money earned in the joint is tax-free.

    For reference, wellfare is ~440$ + they pay your rent and insurance etc. <- that is by the way way more luxurious than what a university student has to live with.
