Opinion: Time to Put Old Attitudes Aside

Post by Wisconsin State Sen. Julie Lassa, D-Stevens Point, represents the 24th Senate District.

As a member of the Wisconsin Council on Workforce Investment, the group charged with drafting the state’s workforce development strategy, I’m pleased to see that helping persons with disabilities successfully enter the job market is a key part of the discussion. It’s an issue I have worked on for some time now, because I know that programs that help people with disabilities find rewarding jobs pay major dividends, not only for disabled workers themselves, but for our entire community.
