Feds make progress in disability hiring, but lofty goal looms large

The federal government now employs more full-time workers with disabilities than it has at any time over the past 20 years, according to a new report from the Office of Personnel Management. President Barack Obama pledged in 2010 to hire 100,00 additional people with disabilities over the next five years. While the Government Accountability Office reported in May the government was not on track to meet that goal, the director of OPM, John Berry, said the new report shows agencies are "moving smartly" toward fulfilling it.
