Op-ED: "Why the Disability Earnings Cap is Holding People Back."

DABC is advocating for the abolition of the Annual earning exemption limit for PWD recipients. Read our op-ed, published today by The Tyee, here: https://thetyee.ca/Opinion/2024/07/04/Disability-Earnings-Cap-Holding-People-Back/.

From the op-ed:

“As an employer, I feel disgusted by the fact that I am complicit in working within the constraints of an ableist system. It’s a system that forces disabled employees to make choices about their work based on how much a person on disability assistance is allowed to earn as employment income before they are rendered ineligible for PWD income — income that is a lifeline as much as it is constraining, and not enough.”
