==Employment for People with Disabilities==
[[#Americans with Disabilities Act|The ADA]] forbids discrimination in [[Consumer Protections / Workers' Rights|employment]]. Even so, but people with disabilities are much less likely than those without disabilities to have jobs (17.5% compared with 65% in 2015).[https://www.bls.gov/news.release/disabl.nr0.htm] Among Of people available for and looking for work, the unemployment rate of disabled people is more than twice that of non-disabled people (10.7% vs. 5.1%).[https://www.bls.gov/news.release/disabl.nr0.htm]
The Fair Labor Standards Act '''allows employers to pay workers with disabilities less than federal minimum wage'''.[https://www.dol.gov/whd/specialemployment/index.htm] Here is a map that shows where this happens.
