Does Nashbar use Amish prison labor?

I just placed a phone order from Nashbar, and they said the order would ship from Ohio. My first thought was they were using prisoners from Mango's Amish prison - do they do that there?

No, Nashbar employs only undecided voters. They will be responsible for picking the next US President. Plus free Shipping on orders over $125.

I believe their old customer pick up shop was @Canfield Ohio in an Amish/hillbilly type area.
No longer have a customer pick up window so it must be some sort of detention center now

Ohio is more than just Amish prisons!

We have corn fields and burning rivers, too.
