Description

This article talks about how phone companies in Missouri charge a huge amount of money for collect calls from prisons. The reason that phone companies can charge such a high rate for collect calls from prison is because they have a deal with the state, and the state gets a large chunk of the revenue generated from the collect calls placed from inside prisons.
