Employees Bring Heart To Workplace

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Todd Erdes clocks in at the Schwabe North America loading and distribution center every weekday, just like the rest of his co-workers.
He works out at the company gym, goes out after work to play darts or bowl and gets dressed up for the company Halloween party.
The main difference between the 31-year-old Green Bay man and the rest of his coworkers is his autism. Erdes' superiors consider his work ethic second-to-none, and he earns more than $11 per hour.
"He brings a different sense of energy to this company. He's an individual that wants to be here 24-7 if he could be," said Isaac Oshefsky, distribution group leader at the manufacturing distributor formerly known as Enzymatic Therapy that produces nutritional supplements.
