Job Market Rough For People With Disabilities

Unemployment among Americans with disabilities inched up last month even as the overall job situation appeared to improve, the U.S. Department of Labor said.

Figures released late last week indicate that the jobless rate for people with disabilities rose to 12.9 percent in June. That’s up from 12.7 percent the month prior.

In addition to showing fewer with disabilities on payrolls, the data also suggest that more individuals in this population stopped seeking work altogether.
