The ADA is 20 years old – does it work?

Posted July 26, 2010, at 2:21 p.m.

The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush

20 years ago this month. Does the law work, or does it unfairly burden businesses?

Should hiring practices be best left to market dynamics, or does the government have a

role How would the work place be different today if it didn’t exist? Have you witnessed -

before 1990 – businesses and organizations refusing to consider job applicants because

they were too old, had poor eyesight, were in a wheel chair, or were missing a limb?
