There was general agreement among employers and disability employment advisers that the National minimum wage (NMW) had benefited disabled people by making low paid jobs better paid. A minority of respondents thought it had created additional obstacles to employment for disabled people. Some disabled employees appeared to have been adversely affected by the interaction of the NMW with the supported placements scheme and the benefits system.
