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
