Hiring Janitors and Gardeners is impossible without the Foreman initially; however you can still hire these individuals after they've been unlocked, even if you fire the Foreman. Since The Clink version, it's possible to have maximum 5 Foremen hired (and run more programs at the same time). Before, you could have only one.
The cost of a Foreman is $1,000 initially and $200 a day, like all administration jobs.
- The Foreman can be useful in setting up access to the Janitor and Gardener, but in truth both are largely redundant until you have a prisoner size to warrant them. Janitorial duties can be performed by prisoners with the construction of a dedicated Cleaning Cupboard, and gardeners only become useful when you hit a budget state that can withstand beautification.
