Finding Jobs

The average unemployment rate for disabled workers was 14.5% last year. It's only 9% rate for those without disabilities. The figures come from the Labor Department and were released yesterday. So far this year, the unemployment rate for those with disabilities is 16.4%. The jobless rate for workers with disabilities who had at least a bachelor's degree was 8.3%— higher than the 4.5% rate for college-educated workers without disabilities.
