Welfare Rates and Crime Prevention| June 15, 2008
Living on Welfare in BC: Experiences of Longer-Term "Expected to Work" Recipients followed more than 60 people over the span of two years.
The report reveals more about the reality of those living on welfare and sheds light on some of the connections between current welfare policies and illegal activities that people engage in to survive.
The report is published by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives and the Raise the Rates Coalition.
Stark Raven interviews Seth Klein about the report and how it can help us look at crime prevention from a different perspective. Seth is the BC director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, and co- author of the report.
