The United States has more than 30 prisons that are currently involved in creating books exclusively for the blind. The program is run through the American Printing House for the Blind and helps blind students to study through the creation of braille textbooks.
Another product of UNICOR is military equipment. Cheap prison labor gives the government a chance to get access to inexpensive equipment for their armed forces, including jackets, holsters, body armor, helmets and even shoes.
