White-collar crime is defined as non-violent crime typically committed by a person who holds a white-collar job, that is, they work in a government position or business. White collar crime has detrimental effects on society, and consists of a destructive nature towards the economy. White collar crime works to make more profit for the rich and cause more hardships to the poor. Due to the lack of conversations on white-collar crime, in comparison to street crime, the public lacks knowledge on its negative effects. White-collar crime lacks media coverage because it does not garner as much attention as street crime. That is, to the public, whitecollar crime is not as exciting or interesting. For the most part, white-collar crimes are ignored, while slowly infecting society like an invisible disease.
