The Disability Edge: Globe and Mail article

The Globe and Mail article "The Disability Edge" is fascinating. In a nutshell the article discusses how employers are starting to hire more persons with disabilities and finding competitive advantage in doing so. In addition, the experience of these companies suggests that one of the major concerns regarding hiring such employees - that the cost of accommodation will be onerous - is simply NOT the case.

The changes in government regulation over the years has resulted in a much better educated disabled community. While still under represented in the workforce the article makes clear that there is tremendous value in these potential employees AND it's not a fuzzy altruistic value but real performance based benefits.
