ABC News: How One Super-Store is Saving the Disabled
At first glance, the Walgreens distribution center in Anderson, S.C., seems ordinary enough. But upon closer inspection, it's anything but. More than 40 percent of the 700 workers here are disabled.
Walgreens employee Julia Turner has Down's Syndrome. Derrill Perry, who works right next to her, is mentally retarded. Garrick Tada has autism. Luann Bannister, one of their training supervisors, is in a wheelchair.
Learn more about how happy and valued Walgreens disabled employees are by watching the video and reading the rest of the story on ABC News.
What did you think of the story and video? Do you know of other companies that value their disabled employees like Walgreens does? Why are these employees so happy? Why do you think it is so hard for some companies to see the value and benefits of hiring the disabled? We all look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
