Jobs for Ex-Prisoners??

Statistics from Queensland, Australia, 1994:

* People with criminal records are 4 times less likely to re-offend if they are employed. 
   54% of women and 76% of men were unemployed when arrested

* It costs the community about AUD$45,000 to imprison one person for one year. If ex-prisoners can be helped to
   find jobs, this will save the community millions of dollars
