The Hill Blog :: Sen. Mike Enzi: Those With Disabilities Need Better Jobs..

My inbox has absolutely just been rocking the last few days.. Trying to call it quits for a bit then came this one about a bill introduced in Congress today, whoops, yesterday:

These programs [under the Randolph-Sheppard Act and the Javits-Wagner-O’Day Act (JWOD)] are performing dismally and we must improve them. My main goal is to create more and better jobs for individuals with disabilities. This bill will allow greater flexibility and provide real job training so Americans with disabilities can develop marketable skills and knowledge to make meaningful career choices. It also restores accountability to these programs to make sure workers are no longer exploited. The bill specifically empowers a strong regulator to police both programs and protect workers.

Nice to know that, should one ever come across a program of this nature that is not doing right by its employees, there is a United States Senator out there precisely, actively interested in seeking accountability from the same..
