“Each year 300,000 young people with disabilities age into what should be the workforce. Sadly, however, in most states, the majority are sitting on the sidelines, despite the fact that most want to work,” said Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, president of RespectAbility. The worst ten states with the lowest workforce participation rates for people with disabilities are West Virginia, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Arkansas, Michigan, Georgia, Tennessee and Florida.
