    The cure for cabin fever - Jen Cullen, The Republican Eagle, MN
    While the DNR is meeting public demand with the cabins, MCF-RW inmates are developing real-world skills. Those selected to help build the cabins receive on-the-job training. The hours they work are counted toward what’s needed to join a carpenters or labor union.

    “It’s like an apprenticeship,” Zanders said.

    The adult workers also are paid $1 an hour for their work, which Zanders and other officials said is a primo wage. Inmates leave with a tool belt and skills to get a job outside the correctional facility’s walls.
