Prisoners' Labour Market History and Aspirations: A Focus on Western Australia

Anh Le and Margaret Giles ()

No 06-12, Economics Discussion / Working Papers from The University of Western Australia, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper examines the employability and labour market aspirations of prisoners. The results suggest that repeat prisoners are less likely to be employed than nonrepeat prisoners. However, a large proportion of the employment differential between repeat and non-repeat prisoners is due to differences in coefficients. There is no evidence to suggest that the frequency of incarceration affects individual characteristics which may limit prisoners’ labour market aspirations after their release from prison.
