Disabled Injured Workers and Housing Instability
My postdoctoral research entitled, Disabled/injured Workers and Housing Instability, examines Newfoundlands disabled/injured workers experience of housing instability, i.e. unsustainable living conditions such as rent disproportionate to income, frequent moves, limited personal space, inaccessible environments or housing far from supports and services. Researchers distinguish between disabled workers (disabled persons in the labour force who may require job related accommodations) and injured workers (persons who are incapable of labour force participation or participate at a reduced level). I use the composite term disabled/injured workers to indicate research interest in both groups and to assert that some injured workers are also disabled workers and share a common socio-political location.
