The introduction to Work, welfare and disabled people sets the scene for the rest of the book. It does this by outlining the approach taken by the book before examining the concept of ‘work’, and its association with wage work and other kinds of paid employment. The Introduction then explores the labour market position of disabled people, and considers how notions of productivity features in the employment of disabled people and the barriers that face disabled people in accessing wage work. It also examines the increasing use of conditionality in welfare benefits for disabled people to reinforce labour discipline. Finally, the introduction outlines the following chapters of Work, welfare and disabled people.

Keywords:   barriers, conditionality, disabled people, labour market, productivity, welfare benefits, work
