Decent Jobs for People with Disabilities: A New Convergence of Possibilities
The Advisory Committee on Increasing Competitive Integrated Employment for Individuals with Disabilities, established in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), just released its Interim Report on September 15, 2015. This report offers a plethora of ideas for successful implementation of WIOA, and for nationwide investment and expansion of competitive integrated employment for people with intellectual, developmental disabilities, or other individuals with sign
ificant disabilities. The primary focus of the committee is to increase integrated employment, at or above minimum wage, and to increase the employment rate with the ultimate goal of significantly reducing segregated work and non-work programs and in the use of sub-minimum wage certificates.
