Looking to Hire?

Consider hiring a disabled person -- maybe a disabled veteran.
Congress acknowledged that society's accumulated myths and fears about disability and disease are as handicapping as are the physical limitations that flow from actual impairment.
William Joseph Brennan, Jr. (1906 -1997), Associate Justice of the Supreme Court
Today is International Day of Disabled Persons, and the theme for 2007 is "Decent work for persons with disabilities." Many disabled people are denied the opportunity to work in an accepting environment. In most countries, 80% of working-age disabled people are unemployed. That's a high rate for so many capable and talented people.
