People with an ambulatory disability: Percentage of those receiving benefits compared to employment rate


Graph: People with an ambulatory disability: Percentage of those receiving benefits compared to employment rate

The second of three graphs comparing benefits (SSI and Medicaid) with employment rate over a three-year period (2008 through 2010) for people with ambulatory disabilities reveals the same trend as with cognitive disabilities.

Again, we might note the positive aspects of increases in benefits with the decreases in employment, but this trend more than any other is not sustainable. Given renewed talk of protecting the defense budget at the expense of discretionary spending (which is where the “safety net” of benefits is funded), finding better long-term solutions cannot be put off.
