The Wage and Employment Effects of the Americans with Disabilities Act
AbstractThe Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 is analyzed in terms of its effects on the employment and wages of disabled men using data from the Survey of Income and Program Participation. The results indicate that, as early as 1990, employment rates of men with disabilities decreased dramatically and continued to decrease through the beginning of 1995. On average over the post-ADA period, employment of men with disabilities was 7.2 percentage points lower than before the Act was passed. In addition, wages of disabled men did not change with the passage of the ADA.
