From Disability Scoop: “For the third month in a row, the unemployment rate for Americans with disabilities showed improvement in November, the U.S. Department of Labor said Friday.
The jobless rate fell to 12.7 percent last month for those with disabilities, down from 12.9 percent the previous month. At the same time, however, fewer people with disabilities were looking for work which is likely responsible, at least in part, for the rate change.
Employment struggles continue to plague those with disabilities to a greater degree than the rest of the population. The economy as a whole added 146,000 jobs in November as general unemployment ticked down to 7.7 percent.”
