Dr. Debra Brucker had two articles accepted for publication. Job satisfaction among workers with disabilities, which will be published in the Rehabilitation Counseling Bulletin, uses data from the 2015 Kessler National Employment and Disability Survey to examine job satisfaction for workers with disabilities.  Findings from the study suggest that educational attainment, perceived pay disparities, and supervisor attitudes are associated with job satisfaction for workers with disabilities.
