Legit Work from home jobs for the disabled
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics surveyed a few years ago and found that the unemployment rate among the disabled was 5.5 % times higher than the rest of the working population.

Affiliate Marketing is a way of making money online whereby you, a publisher, are given a commission for helping a business by promoting their product, service, or site.
There are several forms of these types of promotions but the most popular form used is affiliate marketing; affiliate marketing involves you as a publisher earning a commission when someone follows a link on your blog to the merchant’s site, where they buy something.
There are other ways to earn a commission, and you can make money by referring a visitor who takes some action – for example, when they sign up for something and give an email address, where they complete a survey, where leave a name, and address, etc.
Some companies will pay $10-45 if you get people to leave an email address or complete a survey. Nothing has to be purchased.
Commissions are usually a percentage of a sale for merchants promoting goods; examples are Amazon, Target, etc.
