Hollinger and Clark presented the employees with a list of eight major concerns, from personal health, to education issues, to financial problems. “Being concerned about fi- nances and being under financial pressure are not necessarily the same. However, if a re- spondent considered his or her finances as one of the most important issues, that concern could be partially due to ‘unsharable [sic] economic problems,’ or it could also be that current realities are not matching one’s financial aspirations regardless of the income presently being realized.”38

The study concluded that “in each industry, the results are significant, with higher theft individuals more likely to be concerned about their finances, particularly those who ranked finances as the first or second most important issue.”39 The researchers were un- able to confirm any connection between community pressures and the level of theft.
