SC Business Review Featuring Mike Teachey, GCAN, on Employment & People with Disabilities

LISTEN HERE

Most people with disabilities want to work.  It’s more about getting the opportunity to work because, let’s face it, there can be some barriers to getting a job for some people with disabilities.  Sometimes the barriers can be imposed because we make assumptions about what people with disabilities can or can’t do; and this can indeed limit the opportunities for good workers with disabilities to connect with good jobs.  But our next guest says there are several South Carolina companies that are now specifically recruiting people with disabilities.

Mike Switzer interviews Mike Teachey, executive director of the Barbara Stone Foundation and the lead facilitator for Greenville CAN (Collaborative Action Network) in Greenville, SC.
