When it comes to workforce development, Oklahoma has huge opportunity: finding ways to get more of the 614,000 Sooners with disabilities employed. During this interim study season at the state Capitol, OKC Rep. Ellyn Hefner explored why only about 40% of adults with disabilities have jobs and why 30% who do are paid below the federal poverty level. For this week’s Observercast — Workforce Development For ALL Oklahomans — Hefner details what she learned and what the state can do to assist Oklahomans with disabilities who want to work and employers who want to accommodate them.
