THE SLAMMER ($65,000 – $75,000)

160 kilometers north of Rio de Janeiro, you can find the maximum-security prison named – Arisvaldo de Campos Pires.

In 2009, Raquel Guimaraes (a fashion designer) was having difficulty finding people to crochet and knit her hand-made designs.

She approached the prison’s officials with an interesting proposal; to be allowed to train 18 prisoners (convicted of crimes including robbery and murder) how to crochet and knit for her clothing line.

The program, named the “Lotus Flower” allows prisoners to earn a wage and master a new skill.

And not only do prisoners earn 75% of the minimum wage, but they actually have one day deducted from their sentence, for every three days worked!
