Abstract

Despite equality legislation and equality policies, inequality persists nationally and globally. According to the National Disability Authority, over 36% of working age people (between 20 and 64 years of age) with a disability are employed in the Irish workforce compared to 73% without a disability. A 2018 ESRI study showed that people from a black non-Irish background are less than half (0.4 times) as likely to be employed than white Irish and five times as likely to experience discrimination when seeking work.
