Across the UK there are millions of people who have various Disabilities. There is a high percentage of them who are currently employed but who have a desire to be able to work. Many people know of the rights humans deserve e.g. to be able to have an education, to have a right to a freedom of speech and most importantly in this case to work. Unfortunately the Government are not willing to provide any jobs for people with disabilities. According to the Labour Force Survey, disabled people are now more likely to be employed than they were in 2002, but disabled people remain significantly less likely to be in employment than non-disabled people. In 2012, 46.3 per cent of working-age disabled people are in employment compared to 76.4 per cent of working-age non-disabled people. There is therefore a 30.1 percentage point gap between disabled and non-disabled people, representing over 2 million people. The gap has reduced by 10 percentage points over the last 14 years and has remained stable over the last two years despite the economic climate. If people are giving enough support to promote awareness of this issue we can help make employers and the governing bodies of the local councils in cities all round the UK we can create more jobs for those who have disabilities.
