Removing Barriers to Work: Action Proposals for the 105th Congress and Beyond.
National Council on Disability, Washington, DC.
This report focuses on the barriers to employment encountered by millions of individuals with disabilities and on proposals that would eliminate or reduce those barriers. The report describes the following three barriers: (1) many people would be worse off financially if they worked and earned to their potential than if they did not work; (2) people with disabilities cannot choose their own vocational rehabilitation program; and (3) people with disabilities lack employment opportunities. Fifteen action proposals are suggested to help people with disabilities overcome these barriers. The report concludes with a challenge to the 105th Congress to turn to people with disabilities to contribute to their country and to make their contributions more feasible through enactment of legislation based on the action proposals.
