Nebraska is 5th Best State for Workers with Disabilities
Washington, D.C., March 27 – As the economy expands, for the first time in decades people with disabilities are gaining jobs, success and independence. According to new data, Nebraska now ranks 5th in the nation for employment of people with disabilities. Under Gov. Pete Ricketts, over 3,838 more Nebraskans with disabilities entered the workforce last year, putting Nebraska in the top five states for employment. Other top states include North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Alaska. People with disabilities have been left out of previous periods of job growth. Today’s workforce system is better aligned to enable people with disabilities to succeed, just like anyone else.
