Difficult for disabled people to find jobs
It is getting increasingly difficult for the nearly half a million Swedes suffering serious disabilities to find employment, and the situation has deteriorated over the past ten years. Government agencies are also less likely to hire people with disabilities compared to private companies.
But very few companies offer jobs for people with disabilities according to Lars Lööw works at Samhall, and organisation which helps disabled people to find jobs.
"Its mainly Max hamburger restaurants and (supermarket chain) ICA. But its important also to remember the small businesses who recruit people with disabilities," he told Swedish Radio News.
About half of those who find work via Samhall work for companies with less than 20 employees.
