Workplace inclusion - and more!

I just came across this article at NADS.org. Wow!!! This guy hires 75% people with disabilities to operate his factory (both mental and physical disabilities). He is not doing it as part of any government or charity program, just networking with special education teachers and disability groups to place motivated people in positions where they can succeed.  And his profits and workplace morale have benefitted tremendously! He relates how early on he agreed to a 2-week trial, after which his existing employees said, “Why can’t we hire more people like this, who care, do their work with pride, and smile?”  

What a sterling example of the highest form of tzedakah!
