Aramark will boost pay, staffing & training to help fix prison food problems
The private company that manages food services in state prisons has agreed to hire more people and improve wages and training.
It's part of an effort to fix the state's problem-plagued agreement with Aramark. Those troubles include food shortages, high staff turnover, intimate contact between Aramark employees and inmates, and drug smuggling. A food services worker is suspected now of trying to hire an inmate to arrange a murder.
