In Belarus there are no workplaces even in prisons. Levaneuski is not gave any work

Condemned in Belarus are not provided in necessary volume by work in the absence of the workplaces, subject financing, machine tools, the equipment, raw materials, experts, floor spaces. As a result the colony management is compelled for one workplace to put 5-15 persons. Hence, the average salary for a month at workers does not exceed 1000-20000 Belarus rubles.

It occurs and consequently, that the president of Belarus has promised to provide with work of all condemned (on the TV), but practical steps for realization of this program actually are not made. But on a paper chiefs of colonies are obliged to show, that the part is occupied from them condemned on manufacture. For example, in colony-22 («the Wolf holes») on 700 condemned it is really created no more than 50 workplaces. On these places 200 persons who receive the salary on the average 1000-20000 rubles a month work nearby or do not receive in general. Approximately the same situation is on all colonies and prisons of Belarus.
