Jobs onboard Quantas Airline jets for prisoners!

Prisoners from Changi Prison in Singapore appear to have new jobs, cleaning Quantas’s aircraft.

A union member stated that the prisoners have been hired to clean the aircraft’s flight deck.

A member of the Australian Licensed Aircraft Engineers Association Steve Purvinas said, "The prisoners are released under supervision and taken to the Qantas aircraft,"

"The prisoners are used to wash down the wheel well bays before inspections, they're used to go upstairs into the flight deck of the aircraft and to clean the area out so it's ready for inspection by the local engineers."

The prison in Singapore is renowned for housing some of the most serious offenders including those who have been given the death penalty.

Unsurprisingly Quantas have yet to comment.
