DoD hiring more people with disabilities
Wednesday - 8/8/2012, 9:05am EDT
DoD says 14 percent of its civilian workforce is disabled. The governmentwide average is 11 percent.
Stephen King, DoD's director of disability programs, says part of the reason for the uptick is the emphasis on hiring wounded warriors. King says the military is taking advantage of special hiring rules, wounded warrior job fairs and the governmentwide veterans hiring initiative.
In addition to hiring more people with disabilities, the Pentagon wants to make sure those with disabilities can become integrated into development and leadership programs.
