Disabled Workers a Boon for Some Employers

Bravo to ShopRite for hiring people with developmental disabilities! Especially in this economy, ShopRite clearly recognizes that hiring people with disabilities is not an act of charity, but rather a sound business decision.

Just wish that journalists would understand how calling these individuals "mentally disabled workers," opposed to workers with developmental disabilities (people first language) is not politically correct. Realize it's more words and takes up more space, but hopefully some day this will catch on with the media.
