For Tracie Sanchez, NFIB member, and owner of Lima Pallet, hiring and working with Lima-area residents with developmental disabilities has been rewarding despite initial hesitation, reports LimaOhio.com.
“We’re a second-chance employer, so we have the guys that are felons and then you combine them with this challenge,” Sanchez said. But since hiring David Bradley, a Lima resident, seven years ago, the progress he’s made an employee and person has left an impression on all employees.
“David always had a smile on his face and has always given a 120 percent in everything that he does,” Sanchez said. “He is a great asset to our company. It’s been really rewarding to see David grow as a person and how he takes pride in what he does. Now there honestly are not too many jobs David does not know.”
