Sentenced to a job and a future – Elferink's visionary initiative

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

UPDATE DEC 19: The scheme as it is intended by Minister Elferink is "a good concept" for employers and Aboriginal employees, but many obstacles will need to be dealt with, says Chamber of Commerce Executive Officer Kay Eade.

 

"If you are sentenced in the NT you are sentenced to a job and a future."
This is the motto for ground breaking prison reform being introduced by NT Attorney General John Elferink (pictured above left) who is also responsible for correctional services.
It will give inmates the opportunity of taking on paid work "inside the prison system or beyond its boundary," says Mr Elferink. ERWIN CHLANDA reports and in a comment piece says that this is a visionary move that deserves public and bi-partisan support.
