Despite good economic conditions during the decade of the 1990s and favorable public attitudes toward hiring PWDs, why has employment of PWDs shown a mostly negative trend? Several alternative explanations need to be examined in order to better understand this phenomenon. First, people with disabilities may lack the necessary knowledge, skills, abilities, and other characteristics (KSAOs) needed for the available jobs. Second, PWDs may be less productive than people without disabilities and entail higher labor costs, including insurance costs. Third, employer stereotypes and biases may result in less willingness to hire PWDs. Fourth, employers may fear lawsuits and related legal costs associated with employing PWDs. Fifth, employers may have concerns that coworkers will react negatively to working with PWDs. Sixth, employers may have concerns that customers will react negatively to employees with disabilities, thereby reducing sales. Finally, employers may be unaware of economic incentives that would make hiring PWDs more attractive and cost-effective, or while employers are aware of the incentives, they may not be significant enough to alter hiring practices.

Long-term is one of the biggest environmental factors contributing to the aging process of your lips. Like the rest of your face, your lips can become damaged after exposure to the sun because they contain little or no melanin. The sun’s harmful UV rays can darken, wrinkle and dry out your lips, which makes them appear thinner. Because the skin on your lips is delicate and unprotected, it is more susceptible to moisture loss due to exposure to wind. Using a lip balm with effective moisturizers and sunscreen can help counteract the ill effects of wind and sun.
Apocalypse Not: Here's Why You Shouldn't Worry …
It may seem like such a logical reason that I myself wondered why I didn’t start the list with it. The main reason most of us play videogames is purely to entertain ourselves. Sure, we could read a good book or watch a movie, but the interactivity of it all draws us to gaming instead. Most people play games in the comfort of their own homes, but it’s far from limited to it. Kids entertain themselves in the backseat during long car drives with a 3DS, I see adults gaming on their Nintendo Switch on the train to work and who hasn’t whipped out their phone for a quick game of Candy Crush while waiting in line somewhere?

However, employment of PWDs still lags far behind that of persons without disabilities; many studies have been conducted regarding this issue.
