Wages and job prospects of Hong Kong’s visually impaired not rising proportionately with education levels, study finds
Visually impaired people in Hong Kong are attaining higher education levels, but there has been no commensurate increase in their salaries and job opportunities, a study has found.
The research by Chinese University and the Hong Kong Blind Union, a first in the city on employment prospects of this segment in society, centred on visually impaired respondents who were 18 and above between March and April.
A total of 136 questionnaires with valid responses were received, of which 70 per cent said the respondent attained tertiary education, with 45 per cent having a bachelor’s degree or above.
