Prison Architect allows you to build many types of rooms and some will even let you hire your prisoners to do the work for you. Often, though, these will require your prisoners to pass a course, so keep that in mind. Once you have that down, though, here’s how you assign the jobs.
Head over to the Prison Logistics menu and then Prison Labour. From here, you’ll be able to select the different rooms and open up worker slots that you’ll want to eventually be filled by prisoners. The rooms that allow prison workers are the following:
- Mail Room
Once you build these rooms, you’ll be able to assign slots. It’s as easy as that! Now watch your prisoners slowly take the jobs as they reach the qualifications necessary.
