In the previous literature, employment has been viewed as both a preventative and rehabilitative tool to reduce gang involvement. There has been little research, however, regarding the continuity of gang crime in the work place itself. This paper summarizes findings from a recent survey of N = 1,042 gang members comparing their employment experiences with non-gang member offenders. Significant research findings from five different measures of crime in the workplace are summarized in this paper.
