Prisoners in Argentina get paid 46% more than the minimum payment received by retirees and pensioners. If you worked your entire life, chances are you’ll end up getting about $3.821,33 in Argentina once you retire. On the other hand, if you’re a murderer or serial rapist, you’ll make $6.060 and you’ll even get covered by the prisoner’s own Union (Workers Deprived of Mobile Freedom). No, none of this is a joke, just the sad reality. The nice part is that prisoners don’t even have to actually work to get paid, just being a prisoner entitles you to this, making becoming a criminal a great career choice for many. This is all part of the Kirchner government plan to incorporate criminals to their movement, with the Kirchner inmate political branch being called “Vatayón Militante” (misspelled Spanish for Militant Batallon). Not making any of this up, just the sad reality of a fully collapsed country.
Vatayon Militante: Rapists and murderers get to leave jail for the day and play with children in public schools.
So now you know. Best country to be a criminal in? Argentina. No doubt whatsoever. There’s about 1% of getting caught and if your crimes are bad enough to land you in jail (just being a thief or burglar isn’t enough, sorry) you’ll have housing, medical and food expenses covered, AND sending back home a salary for your contribution to society.
