Let inmates pay extra

In the Sunday, April 13 Mirror story “Inmates lament amount of food,” the inmates complain that they are not getting enough.

Portions are portions.

When the football players, soccer players, basketball players, volleyball players and swimmers are in their prime exercise and competition times, they pay for extra food.

The inmates should do the same thing. After all, they get paid for work, right? Let them pay for extra portions.
