NEW LONDON – Governor Scott Walker joined David Pinno at McDonald’s in New London today to participate in “Take Your Governor to Work Day,” as part of the Board for People with Developmental Disability’s annual “Take Your Legislator to Work” Campaign.
“It was an honor to join David today to see how his job has helped him find professional fulfillment and a sense of independence,” said Governor Walker. “Our forward-thinking reforms and training programs continue to help hardworking people like David improve their lives by removing barriers and helping them find rewarding work. We are committed to connecting disabled Wisconsin youth and adults with gainful employment and creating a more inclusive and accepting work environment across Wisconsin.”
During the “Take Your Legislator to Work” campaign, businesses employing people with disabilities are urged to welcome a legislator to visit their business, providing legislators with the unique opportunity to observe firsthand how businesses provide people with disabilities the education and training needed to successfully employ their skills to create an effective and efficient work environment.
