Where are we now? The AFP Challenge is double the number working in individual jobs. This illustrates that how you count matters….
  • WA employment and day support to 7,989 people age 21 and older in April, 2011:
  • 7,989 receiving support: 2,639 report wages in individual integrated jobs

= 33% in individual integrated jobs

  • Of 7,989 people, 3,984 receive Individual Employment Support. Same 2,639 report wages.

= 66% in individual integrated jobs.

  • Which percentage is accurate? 33% or 66% ? Both? Neither? Good discussion point. Any way you count it, not nearly enough people are working and earning a living wage.
