Unsicker hosts town hall to discuss Disability Employment Project

Missouri

“JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – State Rep. Sarah Unsicker D-Shrewsbury, will host a town hall meeting at Webster University on June 28 at 7:00 p.m. to have an open dialogue regarding the barriers to employment for citizens with disabilities and to begin developing possible solutions.

 

“There are a wide range of issues to take into consideration when working to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities such as healthcare and Medicaid needs, state employment policy, employer education and transportation,” said Unsicker.

 

“During the hiring process, it is important that employers are aware of the many capabilities citizens with disabilities possess. My goal with this town hall is to provide the disability community with the opportunity to give feedback regarding these issues so we can work towards expanding employment opportunities for people with disabilities.”
