Disability and employment: Finding a way to work.
Disabled people experience low employment rates, low pay and poor quality employment. Disadvantages persist through anti-discrimination and employment support measures. Improving social inclusion is an international goal for disabled people, and high value is placed on employment as the means to attain it. The example of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the UK is used in this chapter which draws on the Capability approach and feminist perspectives to argue for participation in ‘work’ – valued shared endeavours – rather than employment at any cost. Relational processes of sociocultural learning and mutual accommodation to extend capabilities and social inclusion are highlighted.

Abstract

Disabled people experience low employment rates, low pay and poor quality employment. Disadvantages persist through anti-discrimination and employment support measures. Improving social inclusion is an international goal for disabled people, and high value is placed on employment as the means to attain it. The example of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the UK is used in this chapter which draws on the Capability approach and feminist perspectives to argue for participation in ‘work’ – valued shared endeavours – rather than employment at any cost. Relational processes of sociocultural learning and mutual accommodation to extend capabilities and social inclusion are highlighted.
