involentary servatude supported in the 13th amendment is deemed not slavery why?

it says involentary servitude is lawful as punishment for a crime

"excluding unjust laws that make this worse as they are not "crimes" as it is not lawful to enforce an unjust law.

for innocent people this is litteraly the country selling them as cheap labor to privet prisions because they claimed they commited a crime, how is that not the deffinition of salvery, 

or is slavery not being taken from your home by force and forced to work without compasation against your will for no reason?

Update:

the question is how is forced labor not slavery just because it is an inmate the state is claiming as property and selling to prisions for cheap labor,

there are states that don't pay inmates at all

innocent people do get wrongly convicted and are right now being sold like property as what is not called slaves

why is it not called what it clearly is?

    It is slavery. It being lawful doesn't magically make it not slavery. The government obtaining other people's money through force or threat is lawful too but it's still extortion. 

    • well i thought that but was told that invointary servatude is not the same thing as slavery i was confused as to why seeing as it meets the deffinition for slavery,
      so your saying it is the country is just ok with that type of it

    You need to read the fourth, fifth, and sixth amendments now. They can't just grab you and put you in prison.

      Prison work programs aren't enforced by a whip. Either you volunteer for it or you don't. It isn't forced. That's the eighth amendment.

    I realize you're a child with many usernames.  That having been said, don't argue what you can't spell.  It's servitude.

    The other word is involuntary.  Then there's literally.

    No, people are not sent to hedge (privet) prisons.  Then there's definition.

    And compasation?  Do you mean compensation?

    I suspect your mental health issues will prevent you from serving on a jury.  Again, don't bother with arguments you can neither spell nor explain.

    These people have been tried and convicted, dear, with benefit of counsel and a jury, unless they waived their right to a jury trial.

    And prisoners are paid -- not a lot, but they do receive wages for their labor.

    You really aren't very bright or knowledgeable, are you, dear?

      Servant, see a shrink and go back to school. You are a mess on multiple grounds. What a disaster area.
