News: A Disability Hiring Quota

A Disability Hiring Quota

For years it has been difficult for the disabled community in the work force.  Being disabled and trying to get gainful employment has been an obstacle for decades.  Yes, there’s the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that states no employers can discriminate on the basis of disability.  But we know this happens in so many ways these days, so the Federal government thinks they’ve found a way to combat this issue.  The Federal government proposed and will soon implement a plan to put forth a law that every company will have to meet a certain quota when it comes to disabled  employees.  This is kind of like affirmative action, and  will then give persons with disabilities a fair chance to work.  What do you all think? Is this good or bad?
