People with a disability should have the opportunity to gain a living by work freely chosen or accepted in a labour market and a work environment that is open, inclusive and accessible? Your authorities should safeguard and promote the realization of the right to work, including for those who acquire a disability during the course of employment, by taking appropriate steps, including through legislation? 3x yes?
