There is rising opposition to the Ontario Government’s autocratic plan to eliminate provincially funded workshops where people with intellectual disabilities do menial tasks for pennies a day.
During recent investigation of the situation by the Toronto Star, it was reported that many enjoy the social life and a place to go during the day, but miss out on opportunities for real employment and legitimate wages. It was also noted that they live on Ontario Disability Support Program benefits of roughly $850 a month. According to critics, those workers do menial labour that provides negligible job training.-- Delivered by Feed43 service
