5 Things Anyone With a Physical Disability Should Know Before Applying to a Job

“For the 57 million Americans living with disabilities, the largest barriers to employment usually stem from stigma about what individuals with disabilities can achieve and contribute to the workforce. Despite an increasing number of people with disabilities entering the workforce, these pay disparities persist as another ‘face’ of these stereotypes, and they result in discrimination that devalues the work and contributions of people with disabilities.”

Willing and able: Disabled workers prove their value in tight labor market

With the low 4.1% unemployment rate making it tougher for employers to hire and retain workers, more are bringing on Americans with disabilities who had long struggled to find jobs. “There’s a growing cadre of companies that look at people with disabilities as an untapped talent pool,” says Carol Glazer of the National Organization on Disability. “When people spend their entire lives solving problems in a world that wasn’t built for them, that’s an attribute that can be translated into high productivity in the workforce.”

Rolling back the civil rights of the disabled harms us all
