Many jobs do not require ‘perfect health’
With nearly half of disabled people not in work, the TUC has published its manifesto to ‘promote equality for disabled people and challenge discrimination against them’.  For some disabled people it is particularly hard to get a job – just 20% of those with learning difficulties, 22% with mental illness or phobias, and only 33% of those who suffer from depression or anxiety are in work.
