LETTER: Youth unemployment driving up crime rate

There is a direct connection between the crime rate and high juvenile/youth unemployment throughout Victoria.

In some parts of (provincial) Victoria, it is more than 25 per cent.

Until such time as governments – of all political persuasions – address this serious social problem, the crime rate will continue to remain high.

There is much truth in the saying “idle hands (and minds) are the devil’s workshop”.
