Crime and Unemployment: What's the link? (2009)

This document, prepared by the John Howard Society, provides a brief overview of the relationship between crime, employment and employment services. It cites a study showing that 75 per cent of those admitted to federal prisons had experienced at least some difficulty with getting or maintaining employment. As well, it notes that inmates are less likely than the general population to have completed high school.
