Scott Walker- Letter to the News Journal Editor RE: Sheltered Workshop Article

Recently, a well-intentioned letter writer advocated for more “sheltered” workshops for the disabled. Why do we feel the need to remove the disabled from normal everyday society?

The disabled want to work and compete just like everyone else does. To limit their occupational horizons by consigning them to institutions is unfair and discriminatory. Our society as a whole suffers because of this.
