Payrates for those incarcerated in the Nebraska Department of Correctional Services (NDCS)

After someone is classified and leaves the Diagnostic and Evaluation Center (DEC or D&E) they are usually given a job within the facility to which they are sent. NDCS tries to give everyone a "pay number" after D&E so that no one can claim indigent status and request free hygiene products. Most people are given menial jobs, such as cleaning a set of windows each day or wiping down the banisters in a gallery each down, just to make them appear "employed" in some productive job on the books. There are three basic payrates, not counting Prison Industry jobs, and the significant majority are at the minimum rate. These are the standard daily payrates in NDCS:

$1.21/day
$2.25/day
$3.78/day
