The Percentage of Supported Employees with Significant Disabilities Who Would Earn More in Sheltered Workshops
Cimera, Robert Evert
Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, v42 n2 p108-120 Jun 2017
This study examined the percentage of 21,257 supported employees served by 74 state-federal vocational rehabilitation agencies in 2013 who would have earned more wages in sheltered workshops than in the community. It found that the overwhelming majority of supported employees earned more in their communities at all wage comparison points; however, substantial differences in wages were identified according to the participant's disability type, occupation, vocational rehabilitation agency, and the region in which they lived.
