I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
Just a reminder, The Cudahy National Night Out is Thursday August 4th from 4:00-8:00 at the Cudahy Family Library.
There will be demonstrations from the Cudahy Police and Fire Departments.
There has been some talk recently in regards to "jobs" for people with disabilities. I have heard some people say that the individuals with disabilities should not be complaining because they are being given opportunities.
To all of this, I say "baloney" individuals with disabilities have a right to be heard. Just because something sounds like a good idea on the surface, that does not mean that it is a good idea. If something is considered a bad choice, is that a choice at all? Is a job that pays significantly lower than minimum wage something to look forward to? I work with and talk to individuals every day and they would never consider having a job like this. If there is no work, than they just sit in a room and watch TV, it acts more like a "baby sitting service" I have also spoken with people who like the idea, not so much for the job itself, but for the social interaction. I am sure there are other social outlets available to these individuals..
