While small businesses across the U.S struggle to find employees, over 70% of our neighbors with disabilities are unemployed. Many are eager and able to work. A job means independence. Security. Relationships. Respect. Dignity. And when you ask employers who do hire people with disabilities they will tell you that they are assets to the business and ideal employees. When given the same jobs, held to the same standards, and paid the same wage that they perform as well or better than their non-disabled co-workers.
