Default Maximum security facilites -wages, yard time, etc..

I haven't dealt with MN Doc for years. Can someone comment on the current living conditions in maximum security places? I've been reading the MN DOC inmate handbook and web site, but wanted your thoughts. Some specific questions are below:

What are the inmate wages per hour now and what sort of jobs are generally available now (print shop, wood shop, cleaning, etc.)?

How much yard time do max. secuurity places give? Are there lots of sports tournaments? Good music program? Any acting opportunities or talent competitions?

What's the food like--are many fresh fruits/veg served? Are fruits/veg grown on site? Do they ever hold special meals where inmates can order take out food or can throw something on the grill like in other states? Does your loved one mostly eat what's in the dining hall or order a lot of extra food from canteen?

Do all facilites still have in person visits for approved visitors? And some places have an option of video visits?

Are any MN maximum security places run by a private prison corporation now?

Thanks to anyone who has knowledge of the maximum security facilities!
