As the U.S. continues to pull itself out of the recession, the unemployment rate among adults with disabilities remains at 14.1 percent — nearly twice as high as the unemployment rate of people without disabilities, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy. During October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month, Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin and Metropolitan Chicago encourages employers in both the private and public sectors to strengthen their workforces by hiring qualified people with disabilities.
