The second premises :
Now that Congress has approved legislation to expand these existing provisions to cover private industry as well,
the number of disabled people who are involuntarily unemployed will drop substantially.
Now that means there is something wrong in private industry
Some private employers in the past deliberately chose not to hire qualified but disabled job applicants.
hence I choose the above option.
I agree with this. If unemployment rate of qualified disabled people will drop if the policy will be adopted by the private industry, then in the first place the private industry was not hiring (or hiring less) disabled applicants.
What's the OA?
Also, what's option E? There are only four options.
