Hiring People with Disabilities

There's a nice blog post on the White House Blog titled, "Hiring People with Disabilities." Did you know that at least two of our presidents, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln, lived with disabilities? John Berry is the Director for the Office of Personnel Management and he writes an interesting blog post that you won't want to miss. Make sure to read it if you're thinking about hiring someone who has a disability.
