According to an Article in MSN Personal Finance Disabled People Are Much Less Likely to Be Employed Even If They Can Work

Being disabled doesn't mean you can't work. However, the rate of unemployment for disabled people in America is significantly higher than the able-bodied population. Disabled people are the largest minority in America, making up about 19% of the population. Despite being a large portion of the population, disabled people are significantly less likely to be employed than their able-bodied counterparts.

Many disabled people would be able to work as long as reasonable accommodations are provided by their workplaces. For instance, a person with chronic pain may be able to work if they are provided with a chair that they can sit in while working. However, many employers simply refuse to hire workers who are honest about their disability status. You don't have to give a reason why you didn't hire someone. "We preferred a different candidate" is reason enough, legally speaking. So, many disabled people never even make it to the interview stage if they disclose their disability in the application.

Disabled people are almost twice as likely to be unemployed than their able-bodied counterparts. Around 6.6% of disabled people are unemployed versus 3.9% of able-bodied folks. Only around 24.5% of disabled people are in the workforce, while 67.6% of abled-bodied people are working. This disparity isn't due to a lack of working ability. Many disabled people are able and willing to work. It is largely due to discriminatory hiring practices and a refusal to accommodate disabled employees.

Please know that there are advocates and groups like Abled Workers Unite who demand Accessibility and Inclusion for our Community. We will keep working for change.

Must Read Without Failure!

Once you send your resume to the wrong people, it is essentially in the "wrong hands."

Remember, in the game of life someone will win and obviously others will lose.

I've never seen a dealer in Las Vegas, deal the cards and subsequently lose.

Therefore, each one of us bear the responsibility of getting our resumes in order and in the right hands.

I Believe You Can...!

MUST READ WITHOUT FAILURE!

Listen carefully...

We often blame ourselves for things from the past, which in-turn can clip our wings from flying in the future. Such things as...

  • Falling short in our marriage.
  • A lack of higher education.
  • No ideal job opportunities.
  • Unsettling home affairs.
  • Mediocre or bad credit.

In reality, such things are not your fault to a certain degree, even though you have a measure of responsibility.

Be like the eagle and "set yourself free" mentally, so you can fly physically. Then, everything else seemingly falls-in-place.

Don't taste that coffee yet...

MUST READ WITHOUT FAILURE!

Listen carefully...and don't wait for a special occasion.

What's your age? Hmm.. What's your level of education? Hmm.. What's your...? The list goes on...! Right?

Here's the BREAKING NEWS!

Certain factors are NOT relevant in your desire and ambition to succeed in life. Your true worth is really wrapped up inside of you like an unpackaged gift, waiting for you to manifest your greatness.

Big, little or smaller, your "gift" will make room for greater things to come.

Then your life will never be the same.

I Believe You Can...!

Put down that coffee or hot chocolate...!

¡MUST READ NOW!

(Don't believe a word I'm saying, just trust your heart.)

Listen carefully...you can become more successful in 2024 "statistically" than 2023, if you...

  1. Release the old daunting pains.
  2. Release the old heavy baggage.
  3. Release the old scornful situations.
  4. Release the old thought process.
  5. Release the old toxic conversations.

It has been said that, "so as a man or woman thinketh and speaketh, so shall their circumstances become."

This is how you take flight in 2024.

I Believe You Can...!

In 2024, many people will fly, and only a few will soar.

Be like an Eagle and soar, then life won't ever be like it was before.

!MUST READ TO AVOID PITFALLS!

Even if I had a high powered sophisticated scientific calculator, I couldn't tell you how many people fall-short at their job interviews. Yes, the numbers are high.

Don't let this happen to you.

However, what in the world is this guy saying below? That's what you need to find out to optimize your interview.

I'm telling you the truth... ¡MUST READ WITHOUT FAILURE!

FACT OR FICTION: Every airline thoroughly checks each passenger before allowing boarding on their flight. (For safety and security reasons.) Right or Wrong?

Then, why do we allow people on our personal flight in life a free boarding pass?

Especially those persons we definitely know...

-Don't like our husband or wife. -Hurt our mental health and welfare. -Make us feel less, small and inferior. -Backstab us out of envy or jealousy. -Say no to our aspirations and dreams. -Don't offer good suggestions or advise.

CASE AND POINT: The people you allow on your personal "flight in life" can often determine if you ever get off the runway of life.

Love, peace, joy and the pursuit of happiness for your family, solely depends on YOU.

Start checking your boarding passes, now!

I Believe You Can...!
