Using Prison Labor for Gold Farming

Forget prison work of breaking rocks and digging trenches! There's a new (and far more profitable) trend in prison labor: turning prisoners into gold farmers!

"Prison bosses made more money forcing inmates to play games than they do forcing people to do manual labour," Liu told the Guardian. "There were 300 prisoners forced to play games. We worked 12-hour shifts in the camp. I heard them say they could earn 5,000-6,000rmb [£470-570] a day. We didn't see any of the money. The computers were never turned off." [...]

"If I couldn't complete my work quota, they would punish me physically. They would make me stand with my hands raised in the air and after I returned to my dormitory they would beat me with plastic pipes. We kept playing until we could barely see things," he said.

So when your self-entitled kid just CANT bare the thought of actually working towards their own gold and wants it NAOOO NAOOO NAOOOO WHAAAA! Remember, not only are you screwing over other players who work for their own in-game currencies, but you're effing up people in other countries.
