The working rights of disabled people are still very much downgraded in our capitalist systems. In Switzerland they’re proposing a basic wage for doing nothing. Most disabled people would be more than happy to work full-time for that salary. What can be done to promote the work worthiness of our disabled brothers and sisters?
Disabled individuals have their work activities limited due to their condition. Most of their employment opportunities revolve around flexible jobs and hours which include making money through online jobs. Home based jobs are indeed very much popular venture for persons with a disability giving them the opportunity to work from home. All of this is made possible with the help of modern technology and high-speed Internet access which means new choices and good paying options for people who want the flexibility and convenience of careers.
This however, is considered to be a temporary solution especially since not everyone has the resources to spend in a computer setup while at the same time, are well versed in using the computer. For those individuals, they are left with little to no options with regards to their work. This is the reason why disability-friendly workplaces are still very rare in this present day and age. There is a lot of more that needs to be done in order to improve their working condition.
Spreading the word out and revealing the truth behind disability myths is one of the very first factors that need to be considered. It should be noted that workability is part of a range of disability myths that exists today a huge number of people need to be overcome. This in turn decreases the likelihood of disabled persons ever getting employed. As a result, their employment options become very much limited.
One way of helping spread awareness is by sharing the message not only to fellow supporters but also to the public. It is good to hear that modern technology has also contributed greatly in helping share the word about disability myths in a timely and effective manner. Just about anyone will be able to share the message over the internet with just a few clicks of a button. This is made even more convenient with the emergence of social media platforms which are used by millions of online users on a regular day to day basis.
There are a number of successful individuals who had disabilities but were able to find success in their respective careers. With that being said, there is more that needs to be done in order to make a disability-friendly workplace a common practice in several offices. Aside from spreading the word and helping uncover the truth about disability myths, people can also look or go to the local government for aid and encourage them to propose law that benefits disabled people particularly with their career opportunities. The more people seeking their aid, the higher the likelihood such bill will be proposed. Hopefully, in the near future we can find equality in terms of employment.
