Huber-style program proposed for state prison inmates

A plan to reform Wisconsin prisons could borrow from a popular work-release program used at county jails.  The Huber program allows county inmates to be released to work sites during the day and return to jail at night.  Former Governor Tommy Thompson has proposed creating a trade school for inmates to learn skilled trades like welding, carpentry and electrical work.  Supporters like State Representative Evan Goyke of Milwaukee, say a Huber-style program could put those inmates to work in the community during the day.

 

 

Goyke says such a program would help employers who have jobs to fill and not enough applicants with the right skills.
