Myer: show us a real commitment to people with disabilities - increase disability employment to 10% by 2015

Myer CEO Bernie Brookes’ comments that a levy to fund the National Disability Insurance Scheme is "not good for our customers" and "is something that would have been spent with us" are incredibly disappointing.

They demonstrate a lack of understanding of Australians with disability, half of whom live below the poverty line - and a lack of understanding of how Australians with disability can positively contribute to our community with appropriate support from an NDIS.

I appreciate Mr Brookes has issued an apology, but I’d like to see Myer to commit to an employment target of 10 per cent of people with disability by the end of 2015. This would be a real demonstration of Myer’s commitment both to people with disability and the broader Australian community.
