12. Yallourn Crime

Yallourn was a perfect garden city designed with grand ideals of equality. However, the number of strikes and grander homes given to managers and white-collar workers don’t exactly scream equality.
Does this have an impact on the kinds of crimes or people who were criminalised in Yallourn?
