Maine workers with disabilities are less than half as likely to be employed as non-disabled Mainers

A 2016 report by the Maine Department of Labor's Center of Workforce and Innovation says that from 2010 through 2014, 32% of these Mainers with disabilities were employed while at the same time 78% of Mainers with no disabilities were employed. The unemployment rate for Mainers with disabilities was almost three times as high as it was for Mainers with no disabilities. For Mainers with disabilities who were working, the median earnings were $16,957/year as compared to a median salary for non-disabled Mainers of $29,185. You could delete the right-hand column link that says "unemployment rate for people with disabilities nationally is almost twice as high" and the one that says "higher unemployment for women with disabilities".
