Every second disabled person in Hungary has a job, while 10 years ago only 18% were working, said the State Secretary Responsible for Care Policy Attila Fülöp of the Ministry of the Interior in Budapest on Friday, according to profitline.hu.
At the Congress of the World Federation of the Hard of Hearing, Fülöp spoke about the fact that the government's goal is not to see people who encounter obstacles due to their disability as needing charity, but to remove all barriers from them so that they can become full members of society.
This requires a secure livelihood, work, and as complete physical and info-communication barrier-free access as possible, he stated.
