Crime and Delinquency, v29 n2 p195-212 Apr 1983
Examined relationships between employment and crime in 61 male misdemeanants. For many, low-level employment and crime were not mutually exclusive, although most respondents were not employed at the time of the arrest that led to their current incarceration. Combinations of employment and crime were more complex than anticipated. (JAC)
