Employment and Crime: An Issue of Race.
Myers, Samuel L., Jr.
Urban League Review, v6 n1 p9-24 Fall 1981
Studies of the relationship between employment and crime indicate that the stigma of a criminal record and the lack of preprison employment experience affect Black and White ex-offenders differently. Findings suggest racial discrimination and institutional racism are intervening factors in the failure of crime prevention strategies, particularly among Black disadvantaged youths. (JCD)
