Title: Homeless Youth Need More Than Low-Paying Employment to Succeed
Author: Gaetz, Stephen
Identifier: 00037
Abstract: Most homeless youth do not lack the motivation to work and do not prefer a criminal lifestyle to a law-abiding one. Homeless youth see deviant and criminal activities as a short term
economic necessity for survival rather
than as a lifestyle choice.
