Since the Americans with Disabilities Act became law in 1990, there has been substantial progress in efforts among people with disabilities (PwDs) to be functionally equal members of society here in the United States. However, on one important marker of PwD participation in the larger society — jobs — there appears to be little improvement in the employment statistics of PwDs. Earlier this week, the Kessler Foundation/National Organization on Disability released the 2010 Survey of Employment of Americans with Disabilities, which found that “little progress has been made in closing the employment gap between people with and without disabilities since the passage of the ADA into law.” Sue Robitaille explores this topic further on Abledbody.com.
