Walgreens Hiring People with Disabilities

MILWAUKEE -- Persons with disabilities are often a forgotten or ignored portion of the unemployment statistic. Now the nation's largest drug store chain is working to use a local success story to call attention to a nationwide issue.
Sofia Walz-Chojnacki was hired one year ago at the Walgreens at 68th and State streets as part of a partnership program with Creative Employment Opportunities, an organization that helps people with developmental disabilities find work.
"She was really just looking for something else and it just came to work that Walgreens was a good fit for her," said Walgreens manager Trina Wankowski.
