Costa Mesa, CA, October 14, 2016 (Newswire.com) - abilityJOBS.com surveyed 40,000 job seekers with disabilities to ask the question, “Why Are You Voting?”
A survey unlike any other in its size, scope and domain, abilityJOBS.com founder, Chet Cooper, and team launched some of the most intrinsic questions to the career site’s immense pool of job seekers with disabilities – the purpose? To discover what is compelling a practicing professional or active job-seeker to ‘get out to vote’ in this 2016 election. With the contentious match-up of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump in play, Cooper knew the voices of PWD's was a crucial one to assess.
"We've dedicated ourselves to understanding the needs of unemployed people with disabilities (PWDs). This survey has brought a new level of awareness."

The abilityJOBS team took a risk in asking their audience to speak up, especially in the unusual terrain of a campaign that has featured the controversial portrayal by Presidential candidate Donald Trump, of NEW YORK TIMES reporter, Serge F. Kovalevsky (who has cerebral palsy). Committing himself to put forth the opinions disabled workers play in the US GDP, Cooper said, “We’ve dedicated ourselves to understanding the needs of unemployed people with disabilities (PWDs). This survey has brought a new level of awareness.” As the shepherd of the largest online source of employment resources for both corporations and PWDs, Cooper immediately saw the demand for INTEGRITY as a high note amongst the responses; “When you’re already expecting a lopsided playing field, the focus on ‘character’ and ‘trust’ becomes even more dynamic. It’s a game-changer – especially now.”
Interested in what unemployed PWDs were voting for in a President, questions ranged from Homeland security to Immigration. For instance, “Is it important for a President to make GOOD on their promises to create new jobs?"—readership resoundingly responded with a consensus of 85%. Or “Do you feel the healthcare system is UGLY?” “As far as BAD is concerned, we’ve seen quite a bit in this presidential race. PWDs make up the largest minority in the country, yet have been ignored as a significant voting power—56 million people can sway an election,” says Cooper.
