Home / Why You Should Not Discriminate People with Disabilities

Disabled groups are often discriminated against. The public has a view that disability is a disgrace or a curse. So people stay away from people with disabilities, even checking them. This is certainly a problem.

Discrimination against people with disabilities is based on physical conditions or disabilities they carry. People have treated people with assumptions or prejudices that with conditions of people with disabilities we have, are considered to be able to carry out activities like other people in general.

Medically, disability is a biological (pathological) condition. Disability is a person of innate birth (not caused by the environment). Disabled people usually need long-term care. However, not all people with disabilities must receive long-term care, only those with disabilities who medical conditions that qualify for LTD. This view perpetuates the concept of persons with disabilities as “sick” and relies on medical services. People with disabilities are viewed morally, people with disabilities are connected as people with sin and evil. This kind of discrimination treatment can be clearly seen in the field of work. Most job providers are reluctant to accept disabled people as employees. They will not be able to work as effectively as other employees who are not disabled. So for job providers, hiring people with disabilities is tantamount to pushing companies on the bank of bankruptcy because they have to provide some tools for carrying out their activities.
