John Oliver Features Tom Gores' Company

(prison labor is first half. prison phones starts around 11:17)

I think everyone already knows Tom Gores is in the prison phone game. There have been numerous articles written about price-gouging, illegal kickbacks to the prison operators, having prisons reject visitors so they can increase business, etc.

Honestly, it's nice to see his company featured on Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I only wish they had connected it to Gores. He has plenty of goofy pictures John Oliver could have mocked.

At the end of the day, it's not about wins and losses. Teamwork, fair play, and good sportsmanship make champions of us all.

Holy price gouge Batman.

Really wish Oliver put a face to Securus since that's how you gain any traction to supposed bad business practices. Any one of his (Gores) coked up faces would've done the trick I think.
