New analysis by the American Institutes for Research finds that those with disabilities earn 64 cents to every dollar their colleagues make, a disparity on par with the gender pay gap. Considering that equal pay is vital to keeping those with disabilities financially independent and out of poverty, our panelists explored the key facts and the ways that policy can help equalize income. Speakers also discussed what recent changes to the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act mean for workers with disabilities.
