This is semi-accurate, but there is a growing movement to privatize large chunks of the penitentiary system in some states - that means shifting to private for-profit companies to watch the inmates. The primary way they intend to make a profit is by cutting out the number of guards - less insurance and liability, no pension contributions, screw the unions, etc.
Separately, if you can hack it, I've never heard of a dentist bitch about their career. They all work four days a week, golf the fifth. You buy someone's practice and assume their book of clientele and as long as you don't fuck it up, the practice is paid off in seven to ten years. The only risks are infidelity (your wife won't like it when you hire super hot and young hygienists) and easy access to certain pain killers. Oh yeah, and you sometimes have to deal with bad breath up close.
