Here’s some more news on the sheltered workshop courtesy of Disability Scoop. It seems another state, this time Oregon, is headed in the same direction as Vermont (and perhaps Minnesota).

Again, as the article states, at issue is the fact that “…individuals with developmental disabilities who wanted to work in community-based settings were instead stuck in jobs at sheltered workshops earning less than minimum wage”.

The article is entitled “Judge Approves Shift Away From Sheltered Workshops” by Shaun Heasley.  Missouri, hello? Are you listening?
