Labor Statistics of Americans with Disabilities
Yesterday, the Kessler Foundation in partnership with the University of New Hampshire's Institute on Disability released the National Trends in Disability Employment (nTIDE) Monthly Update for August. The Bureau of Labor Statistics' Jobs Report shows a mostly positive picture of American workers with disabilities. Compared to a year ago, the employment-to-population ratio indicates 102,000 more of these individuals are working. That being said, the number of Americans with disabilities looking for employment decreased slightly, as evident in the labor force participation rate.

Happy Labor Day, everyone!
