In today's highly competitive business environment,
more and more American companies are choosing to utilize offshore labor
for manufacturing. Outsourcing is a good business decision that relieves
companies of fixed overhead costs. However, sending work to foreign countries
deprives Americans of jobs and creates adverse economic effects.
a domestic outsourcing solution that offers manufacturing cost savings, while
providing tremendous benefits to our communities.
OnShore Resources specializes in labor-intensive manufacturing
and operates as a participant in the Prison Industry
Enhancement Certification Program (PIECP). The U.S. Congress
created PIECP in 1979 to encourage states to provide
employment opportunities for inmates that approximate
private sector work opportunities. Under PIECP, private
companies are allowed to locate their businesses on prison
property, then train and hire a certain number of qualified
inmates who have chosen to participate in the program.
All PIECP employees earn a prevailing wage, which is
the wage paid in the surrounding locale for similar work.
From this income, inmates pay taxes and child support,
contribute to the Crime Victims Compensation Fund, and
also pay a portion of their room and board. Inmate employees
benefit from twenty percent. Upon release, money saved
by inmate employees while working at OnShore Resources
can be used to assist them in establishing residence
and providing for themselves while seeking employment.
Research shows that the
vast majority of inmates who participate in PIECPs and
acquire marketable skills do not return to prison, and
successfully reintegrate into society.
When you work with a PIECP such as OnShore Resources, everyone
benefits. Companies enjoy superior
quality products from a well-trained and highly motivated
work force. Taxpayers bear less of the cost of inmate
incarceration. Victims receive restitution and compensation.
Children and families of inmates receive ongoing financial
support. Jobs remain in the United States, and communities
grow healthier as lives are reclaimed.
Choose OnShore Resources as your
contract manufacturing partner, and you'll
be helping a lot more than your bottom line.
