Concern fewer jobs for disabled people

From Nine To Noon, 11:20 am on 20 May 2020

With the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic impacting the profitability of many business and the unemployment line set to grow, there's concern disabled people will struggle to find work. 

In March, prior to the level 3 and 4 lockdowns, the unemployment rate was 4 percent, but since then several economists have been predicting a jump to between 10 and 15 percent - or even a blowout to 30 percent. Workbridge Chief Executive Jonathan Mosen says the job market is now even tougher than usual for people with disabilities.
