2015 Chinese New Year Party
It was reported recently in the press that a disabled graduate with 1st Class Honours Degree still could not get a job after 25 times of interviews, this is indeed a very sadden case.
She mentioned during the 2015 Chinese New Year Dinner Party of the SDPP on Sunday that even though a lot of basic facilities and working places are yet to be improved to suit the disabled, she believed that some jobs are still suitable for the disabled.
She emphasized that based of the normal practice in employing an employee, an employer can choose not to employ a worker permanently after a trial period if the employee is found to be not suitable. It all depends on whether an employer would give a chance of employment to the disabled.
She urged employers to change the concept on only employing those who are physically healthy and try to consider disabled who are suitable for certain jobs.
She also urged the Penang state government to lead by example so that more disabled could be employed.
Those who attended the party including, Sate Welfare, Caring Society and Environment Chairman YB Phee Boon Poh, former state assemblyman for Kebun Bungah Tuan Jason Ong and former Gerakan Vice President Datuk Seri Chia Kwang Chye.
