Maine Employer Views of Workers With Disabilities: Results from the 2009 Minding Maine's Business Survey


Research staff from the Muskie School Disability & Aging program area sponsored the "Minding Maine's Business (TM)" survey to include questions regrading the employment of people with disabilities in Maine businesses. Key Findings from the 2009 Survey: Two in 10 business decision-makers surveyed said they employ someone with a physical or mental disability; Of those companies employing a person with a disability, 74% do so because the employee was the best available person for the job; Just over one-third (35%) of respondents said they would find it helpful to be part of a business network that would share information regarding the employment of people with disabilities.
