It featured the “Final Rule” of Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 which now sets revised requirements for employers with contracts with the federal governmentfor employing individuals with disabilities.

The jobs are a sampling of some of the best jobs that people with disabilities are likely to get and perform with relative ease, according to Lee. These jobs also pay well and the outlook for growth is high, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics."
