Disability Employment Shows Signs of Improvement

See this article by that title on DisabilityScoop.  It begins:
The job situation for Americans with disabilities improved dramatically in October with unemployment dropping to its lowest level in more than two years, the Labor Department said Friday. 
The unemployment rate fell to 13.2 percent for those with disabilities in October. That’s down significantly from 16.1 percent the month prior and marks the lowest jobless rate on record since April 2009. 
The improvement in the employment situation is significant because it comes even as the number of Americans with disabilities who were in the labor force — those working or seeking work — increased. In contrast, the unemployment rate has eased at other times largely due to a decline in the number of people looking for employment rather than an actual improvement in the job market.
