Right now from what I understand each inmate has to work to get to get state pay (a big $15 a month).  Working (i.e kitchen, yard or janitor) does not qualify you for good time, unless its in prison industries which not every facility has.  An inmate can earn good time by taking program classes (Drug program) and college classes.
