Helena Berger of AAPD on Lack of Employment for People with Disabilities
"The A.D.A. has really helped to ... start to break down some of the attitudinal barriers and that people with disabilities are able to participate, you know, much more fully than they ever have been before ... but I would say the biggest challenge has been in the area of employment. And that number has been pretty static in the last 25 years."
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, a civil rights law prohibiting discrimination based on disability. But unfortunately, employment opportunities for people with disabilities have gone unchanged since the passage of the ADA. A discussion with Helena Berger, President and CEO of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).
