Employment Awareness

Six By ’15 - October 3, 2014

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month, and related articles are starting to appear. The graphic above is the best thing I have seen so far. It clearly and simply communicates the issue we are dealing with … a huge employment gap for people with disabilities in the United States.

Why the gap? That's a much bigger question, with many answers. But it helps to know the size and shape of the problem before trying to understand and solve it.

By the way, the “Six By ’15” coalition looks pretty interesting. It’s the first I have seen of it, but I like the list of sponsors and endorsements, and the six goals all seem pretty well chosen.
