    Sign The Petition Now For JOBS!

    The Second part of 2009 efforts on behalf of people with disabilities has begun. Here is the www.thisabled.com petition to President Obama to increase the number of Federal employees with disabilities by five percent. We ask that you sign it and forward to others as well as share.
    Thank you.

    Petition Text
    We call on President of the United States Barrack Obama to employ people with disabilities at all levels of the Federal Government. Currently people with disabilities make-up less than 1 percent of the Federal workforce, this is unacceptable. We can longer afford to keep the most vulnerable in poverty by denying them jobs. America is better than that and we will prove it!
    Five percent of Federal workforce to be people with disabilities by 2013, no excuses!
    Together, we will send Washington a clear and unequivocal mandate to fix the unemployment problem which faces 54 million people with disabilities. We will not, we cannot and we must not take the same lame excuses, we have for decades. Five percent-No Excuses!

    Please HAVE 3 OTHER PEOPLE SIGN. THANKS

    Dear J. Robles-

    Are you aware of the current Administration's New Freedom Initative?
    http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/newfreedom/

    Is it your proposal to start a new program or ask Obama to build on the existing policy?

    Are you aware of "Schedule A" CFR 213.3102?
    http://federaljobs.net/disabled.htm

    I spoke with an advocacy group last year and the "New Freedom Initative" was portrayed as an enhancement of TWP. The catch was that there was no occupational assistance similar to what state Department of Rehabilitative Services provide.

    I think it is GREAT that you are proposing greater job accessability to the disabled but additional assistive proceedures should also be taken into account. Having applied for "imparement related work expenses" through the SSA there is VERY little flexibility from the SSA to promote SSDI beneficiaries to return back to work. Having attended the SSA's TTW&WI committee before the sunset a few years ago it assured this SCI that there is very little assistance provided to the inhibiting factors to (physically) get to work in the first place.

    Just wondering if all considerations have viewed,

    ColonusFan
