    In the video: On the importance of integrating people with disabilities into the employment market (Editing: Stick pages)

    On May 19, the large virtual employment fair will open, at the initiative of the Histadrut and in cooperation with the Employment Service. One of the most important emphases at the fair will be on people with disabilities, whose integration is promoted by the Histadrut. The Virtual Fair website will offer various jobs that will be fully accessible and equal to the general public and Guy Simchi, a person with a disability in the form of blindness, explains the importance of the issue:



    "People with disabilities enter society through the world of employment. To live with a disability, to deal with it and to bring it into the public sphere in general, and privately into the world of work.



    For example, when I, as a person with blindness, do not see what is around me, I develop other abilities that I bring. When I get a senior position, I set an example for others in my community, people with disabilities and also others in the workplace, who see me as a manager. They tell themselves that if I, a person with blindness and disability, succeed - they too can overcome obstacles.



    Sometimes it is very convenient to succumb to disability. It is difficult to overcome it and of course it is possible to receive an annuity and be at home, but there is great value in overcoming fear and going out into society. One of the main tools for this is the world of work, because there you acquire friends and gain meaning and self-worth.



    When I come home and sit with my four children and my wife, and know that I take care of my family and myself - there is nothing about it.

    More and more people with disabilities are entering the world of work and integrating into society and I think today society is a little more open and understands the importance of accepting and bringing people with disabilities into it.

    There is much more to do in the field and this employment fair is very important for this because it is for the first time integrating people with and without disabilities.



    The social perception of the Histadrut says that everyone is together, in the same place and we are starting a new step here towards the coming years and producing full equality.

    We encounter quite a few obstacles, but as a person with a disability I say - you can go through any obstacle, yourself or with help.

    A lot of times we need help and it's out of the ordinary to ask for it.

    If you have difficulties entering the world of work, you have an address - the Histadrut knows the appropriate response to every situation. "To
