Leveraging the Socio-Economic Status of Persons With Disabilities Through Employment

 Author (s)

 Andrews Amenyo


Nearly every State in the world recognizes people with disabilities (PWD) as a substantial protected class. Despite the state’s economic and social development, they continue to confront job discrimination and other problems on a global scale. This essay examines the difficulties that job seekers with disabilities encounter in a few states and locations around the world. The relevance, applicability, efficacy, and efficiency of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, as well as other municipal statutes and supplemental legislation, have all been evaluated. The high unemployment rate among those with disabilities may have several causes or contributing variables, which have all been carefully considered. The challenges faced by people with disabilities in the developing world when compared to those in the developed world with comparable democratic institutions and systems of governance were examined through a critical comparative analysis of Ghana, a small developing country in West Africa, and the United States of America. There are solutions and suggestions to aid all stakeholders that address the considerable challenges that persons with disabilities confront in their employment, job retention, and pay, as well as their inclusion and successful participation in the global labor market.

Keywords:  Persons With Disability (PWD), anti-employment discrimination, employment, disabilities.
