Disabled Failing to Find Work

This headline grabbed my attention! Yes. The disabled are failing to find work, along with 10% of the rest of the population. I’d have thought it to be a little obvious, that statistically it would be like that.

Can you blame employers either, given the choice in the labour market, would you employee the easiest people to manage? I think a little more thought and priority or reward should be given to businesses that take on the more complex employees. After all we encourage employers to take on long term unemployed, or young apprentices.

I may not be able to offer incentives or fleshed out ideas, but there does appear to be a gap that needs to be addressed in a comparable why to the rest of unemployment.

If you’re interested in reading more the CMI have a little article, but I’m afraid it doesn’t link back to anything more useful that I could find.
