On this day in 1990, President George H. W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits discrimination based on disability in several areas, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, communications and access to state and local government’ programs and services.

This embedded in law what Workshops has known since 1900 - people with disabilities want to work and are able to work and shouldn't be denied employment based on their disability, but should be employed because of their abilities.
