Doug has worked for decades in employment and disability supports. He's an advocate for a sibling with disabilities. In Twenty-Two Cents an Hour, he focuses on how the Disability Industrial Complex is often impenetrable, mired in deficit-thinking, and controlled by the lobbying of trade groups that do little for people with disabilities.
Doug has published eight books with publishers including Penguin-Random House, Chicago Review Press, Virgin Books, and Cornell University Press. His essays on labor, mental health, and disability appear regularly at the SUN magazine.
Doug is appointed as Public Service Faculty at the Institute on Human Development and Disability at the University of Georgia where he directs the Advancing Employment Center.
