Legit Work from home jobs for the disabled
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics did a survey a few years ago and found out that the unemployment rate among the disabled was 5.5 % times higher than the rest of the working population.
Finding a job for people with disabilities is very hard, and finding a full-time job is even harder.
The bureau found that more people with disabilities were working part-time, than the rest of the workforce.
The cost of healthcare for people with disabilities especially physical disabilities exceeds what they could earn at a job.
Medicare and Medicaid do provide good health care benefits for disabled people that most jobs will not provide. But the unfortunate possibility is you could lose your medicare and Medicaid benefits if you get employed.
