Employment prospects for disabled 'bad'
(07-22 13:06)

The government has been urged to introduce a quota system to help improve the employment prospects of the disabled.
A study carried out by the Hong Kong Red Cross John F. Kennedy Center Alumni Association found that 70 percent of disabled people in Hong Kong have been unemployed for over a year, despite being well-educated.
Labor Party lawmaker Fernando Cheung said the disabled were facing an "unfriendly" labor market. --RTHK
