The Prison Blues©Story

In 1989, The State of Oregon was challenged to create jobs for inmates at the Eastern Oregon Correctional Institution. A review was conducted to decide what type of industry would best fulfill the demand for inmate jobs. Following feasibility studies, analysis of the effect on Oregon's labor business, public hearings and legislative presentations, a 47,000 square foot facility was constructed. Thus, the beginning of a new jeans factory – The Prison Blues©Jeans Factory.
