Overcoming the Cash Economy: Strategies for Resettlement and Vocational Professionals

By Erik S. Herron

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), June 1996

Soviet refugees work "off the books" for a variety of reasons, and a culture of the cash economy has developed in the refugee community. It is beyond the power of vocational professionals to eliminate the cash economy or the disincentives to legitimate employment. However, by engaging in educational efforts in which members of the refugee community participate and by providing incentives for those who obtain early employment, legitimate employment will be encouraged.
