Equality and Human Rights Commission Report

A study has suggested disabled Scots are paid on average £1.20 less per hour than able-bodied colleagues.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission report also concluded that disabled people had an employment rate of 43%, compared with 80% for non-disabled workers.
The figures on disability were recorded in 2013.
 It would be great if people with sight loss could even obtain a wage as 70% of the blind and partially sighted population are not in employment. This figure has remained unaltered over the last 20 years.
