Mixed reviews on state prison food service privatization

LANSING, MI (WTVB) - The new contractor hired to provide meals to inmates in the state's prison system is reportedly doing a good job.  That's according to prison officials about a week after the move to privatize the system.  Union leaders, though, say Aramark hasn't hired enough workers or properly trained the ones they have hired. 

The move is expected to save the state between $12 million and $16 million a year and eliminates more than 350 state jobs.
