Our Job Filter initiative’s message is clear and simple: life changes for people with disabilities when they find a job. However, in Spain, almost 4 million people with disabilities view working as only a dream. In general, in our society, being able to work and having a job in which you are treated fairly is a fundamental right for any person. However, for people with disabilities, society tends to relate employment to charity and if a particular job is seen as more critical, or the working conditions are not as safe, we cannot ask them to take on this role.
The lives of people with disabilities improve with a rewarding job. Employment has a positive impact on autonomy and independence, inclusion in society, self-esteem, personal fulfilment and, ultimately, makes us all happier.
With this job filter, we want to change this idea that labour inclusion is a form of charity, rather than a fundamental right for everyone.
Dare to dream, apply the job filter!
