Man with CP harassed daily while trying to work

Just saw this story about Jamie Johnston, who has cerebral palsy and works as a sign holder outside a Halloween store in Texas. People are reporting this to Adult Protective Services , complaining to his employer , honking, and calling the police. Jamie says he just wants to work.

The video attached to the article at the above link is worth watching. The story reflects why so many people with disabilities remain unemployed.

I passed this to my friends in TX--they will find that store and shop there!
