星期五,监狱警卫Brian Shoemaker正在弗吉尼亚州西南部的Lee监狱的大厅巡逻,当时一名犯人试图挤过他进入禁区。在鞋匠告诉囚犯转身后,囚犯向他猛冲,向他猛击他的肩膀。

鞋匠没有受到重大伤害。但在部分政府关闭期间,他没有在美国最危险的联邦工作岗位上工作,这并没有让他感到懊恼。他和其他监狱工作人员的安全担心正在升级,因为16小时轮班变得日常工作,越来越多的警卫呼吁生病以抗议或从事边工作以支付账单。

“我不认为我们应该受到那种事情的影响而且没有领到薪水,”48岁的舒梅克说,他是李监狱的一名17岁的老将。“我每天都走在这里做我的工作,这非常危险。”

鞋匠是被美国政府视为“必不可少的雇员”的36,000名联邦监狱工作人员之一,这意味着他应该在关闭期间报告工作,即使他在政府重新开放之前不会得到报酬。

即使这些员工应该工作,“华盛顿邮报”收到的包括李在内的10所监狱的工会官员表示,自关闭开始以来,没有上班的员工数量至少增加了一倍。

因此,惩教人员和其他监狱工作人员说,那些出现的人经常双班倒。秘书,看门人和老师们正在填补缺席的人员。根据一位工会官员的说法,至少有一所监狱 - 西弗吉尼亚州的Hazelton联邦惩教中心 - 自关闭以来,对军官的袭击次数有所增加。

Hazelton监狱的当地工会主席理查德•赫尔德雷斯说:“在停工期间,生病和休假的人数有所上升。” “出现的工作人员正在处理这种暴力事件,长时间工作和额外的加班工作,不确定的是我们什么时候会得到赔偿。”

惩教人员(通常称为监狱看守)在联邦雇员中是独一无二的,原因很多。每次报到工作时,他们都处于罕见的伤害,即使是他们的生命中。监狱工作人员也都付出那些在联邦执法工作的最低水平,与一间$ 40,000到$ 50,000个verage年薪。

许多 工作在没有公共交通的偏远乡村小镇,通勤往往每个小时或更长时间。监狱经常是这些乡镇的生命线。

众议员蒂姆瑞安(D-Ohio),其所在地区包括里斯本的联邦监狱,他表示,由于人员短缺,监狱的安全状况已经很脆弱,但自关闭以来,这些危险已经飙升。

“我确实知道焦虑程度正在上升,压力水平正在上升。它已经建设了一段时间。这使汽油着火,“周二参观监狱的瑞安说。

在伊斯特尔顿,这是一个高度安全的设施,10月份犯罪老板怀特·布尔格被囚犯杀害,这种情况非常紧张。

联盟和监狱官员表示,自上周五以来,有七名警官在三起事件中遭到袭击。没有一名警员受重伤。高安全性的监狱通常会看到许多人在整个过程中遭到攻击月, 赫尔德雷斯说。

监狱官员承认发生了三起事件,但未提供进一步评论。

Heldreth援引监狱提供的数据称,监狱中的警员和其他工作人员人数增加了四倍,从平均每天15至20名员工增加到每天约80人。Slide 5 of 49: Union members and other federal employees rally to call for an end to the partial government shutdown, Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019 at AFL-CIO Headquarters in Washington.

Heldreth说,官员被要求每周工作一次或两次16小时,而不是每月工作一次或两次。非执法人员的工作人员被告知要离开他们的办公桌工作,以便在近一周(而非每月)的基础上填写缺席警卫。在他们招聘时,这些工人在佐治亚州联邦监狱学院接受为期三周的警卫培训。

那是20年前,52岁的Opal Brown,黑泽尔顿监狱教育部的秘书。自关闭以来,布朗一直担任高级职员,一次是在高安全监狱巡逻的囚犯,她在正常工作期间从未遇到过。

“我与他们没有任何关系。他们知道你不是军官,他们想让你看看他们能走多远。这非常危险,“布朗说。

监狱看守关闭的一个特别令人羞辱的方面是,囚犯都知道警卫没有得到报酬。

在元旦,囚犯甚至接受了特别的饭菜,如牛排或康沃尔野味母鸡,这些都是由没有领薪的官员提供的。

工会领导和工作人员说,囚犯感觉到警卫的不安全感,嘲弄警察,甚至测试他们是否可以贿赂他们。

“囚犯知道关机; 他们知道我们没有得到报酬。他们在这种压力下发挥作用,“弗吉尼亚州惩教官员舒梅克说。

与此同时,囚犯几乎没有什么变化,他们继续从国会拨款的基金中获得食品和医疗服务。

几名警官说,周五当他们收到他们在监狱工作的薪水时,他们公开沮丧。如果一名警员没有听到囚犯的消息,当囚犯在小卖部排队购买他们每周供应的小吃,邮票时,他们看到了发薪日的迹象。和 苏打。

囚犯从事各种工作 - 主要是为了维持设施 - 每小时12美分到1美元,加上偶尔的奖金。宾夕法尼亚州艾伦伍德监狱的当地工会主席Shane Fausey表示,囚犯并没有赚很多钱,但是他们的薪水感觉就像是一记耳光,Fausey说他们是通过小卖部的利润获得资金的。

“我们冒着生命危险,但我们没有得到报酬,”福西说。“我们正在支付那些骚扰我们孩子并从老人那里偷东西的人。“”

在加利福尼亚州隆波克的一所监狱中,惩教人员Ryan Enos说,自关闭开始以来,两名囚犯嘲笑他没有得到报酬,一名囚犯检查他是否容易受到贿赂。

伊诺斯在一个名为“洞穴”的地方工作,那些受到纪律处分的囚犯每天被锁在牢房里23个小时。Enos说,第一次嘲讽是在上周发生的,因为Enos在休息一小时之后将一名囚犯带回了他的牢房。

“他说,'嘿,你得到报酬了吗?这就是你应该为卡特尔工作的原因。他们永远不会关闭,“伊诺斯回忆道。

“他们总是在寻找一个角度,”他说。“任何时候任何人都表现出任何类型的弱点,他们都会利用这一优势。”

一些监狱工作人员表示,对华盛顿的愤怒普遍存在,特别是因为特朗普总统和国会议员在关闭期间仍在收取工资,而他们未能解决预算僵局。他们还说他们觉得特朗普和国会放弃了。

“这些都是诚实,勤劳的人,他们为这场政治猫捉老鼠的游戏付出了代价,”Fausey说。“他们只想安然无恙地回家,并能照顾好自己的家人。我认为政府需要向他们展示一些忠诚度并支付他们一天的工作。“

周三,与众议院议长南希佩洛西(D-Calif。)和参议院少数党领袖查尔斯·舒默(DN.Y.)举行的新闻发布会上,代表惩教人员的工会全国总统表示,特朗普关于隔离墙的论点是不诚实的。

“为美国和公众提供什么服务,以边界安全的名义关闭政府,忽视我们的内部安全和联邦监狱内部的结构?”埃里克杨说。“我们是这次关闭的幕后黑手。。。如果我们的任何专业人员在这种分散注意力的情况下发生了某些事情,那么血就会在你手上 别再和我们一起玩鸡了。“
