WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Many businesses throughout the United States continue to deal with staff shortages.
However, there is a population of people out there ready to get to work.
SPECIAL COVERAGE: Getting Back to Work
The month of October is dedicated to National Disability and Employment Awareness.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, one in four people in the United States have some form of disability, many of which are sometimes limited when it comes to finding a job.
Disabilities can be physical or mental impairments, which can limit one's everyday activities.
While people with disabilities have protections such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, not even 18% of that population were employed last year.
While we've come a long way when it comes to inclusion, activists for people with disabilities say we've still got a long way to go.
