Found that as well as "rank" giving members a position and authority, the legitimate job allows the worker to then use the job as a illegitimate way o committing crime, i.e. using his status to get hold of unlicenced goods such as tobacco and alcohol and then sell them through there (link to Hobbs and Dunningham's 'Glocal' Crime)
