In charge of US Labor in Albania, Leyla Moses-Ones has delivered important messages today about the political situation but not only in Albania.
Moses-Ones participated in the conference “Economic Empowerment of People with Disabilities” of the Albanian Foundation for the Rights of People with Disabilities.
The diplomat emphasized the law, saying that the gap must be bridged between what is written on paper and what actually exists.
“Firstly, i want to point out the Government of Albania to ensure that the appropriate legislation is written and enforceable. Protecting the rights of people with disabilities is an effort that should transcend party lines and unite officials in a common cause.
Secondly, I urge you as individuals to ensure that people with disabilities are given the same opportunities at work or at leisure – like the rest of society.
Be proactive – consider how to make your businesses and workplaces more accessible to people with disabilities.
Think about how your hiring practices can be adapted to give people with disabilities equal employment opportunities and equal opportunities to be trained, to learn and to contribute to Albania’s progress ”, concluded Leyla Moses-Ones./abcnews.al
