The increase of 5% of the labor accident rate in our country is not the only black figure around Labor Day, which is celebrated on May 1. Companies with more than 50 employees do not comply with disability regulations. They should reserve 2% of the workforce to workers with a disability.
Being born with a disability has never been an impediment to Irene Enebral, a receptionist in a psychology bureau who denounces: “There should be no problem in finding a person with a disability.”
She has been working as a receptionist for a month, attending calls that go into the psychology office, but her fate is not available to 1.8 million disabled people of working age.
Of these, one in three is unemployed. Nazaret Jiménez is an example, and is that in the last five years has not been able to find work. “I always think that in any company I will be an ideal candidate,” he says.
He recognizes that being in a wheelchair has closed the door of several companies: “They tell me that I can not access because they do not have adapted seat and because they do not have the adapted entrance.”
Since entities seeking to increase the employability of this group blame the misinformation that no more job openings. “The adaptation is as easy as setting up a table and there is nothing more to do,” says Javier Font, President Famma Cocemfe Madrid.
All help to improve labor insertion is welcome, such as bonuses or the 2% quota reserved in large companies. Although the best impulse is to be well prepared as Nazareth is, whose effort has borne fruit in the end. He has an offer to start work next week.
