This sounds like a neat company finding a way to add value to those afflicted with autistism

    It is nice that there are some companies out there that will do that. I'm sure that the workers feel better about taking care of themselves than letting the government do it. And the company gets loyalty from the workers. Win win.

  • I must have placed my response in another post. Someone will be scratching their head.

    We have been dreaming of starting another business that employees teenagers, teaching all aspects of business as well as earning a minimum of $10 and hour. Most would "graduate" out of the program to either start their own businesses or take positions with another company by the end of college.

    A few long-term employees would probably be good and this article opens up another possibility that I am going to explore.

    Local employers might look at it as well since good, dependable, long-term employees are at a premium these days.

  • People on the Autism spectrum tend to only do well at specific types of work.

  • True but if they can do programming they should be able to do numbers, or shipping, visually inspect things and have a keener eye for detail than those of us who can get distracted.

    We sell and therefore inspect thousands of records (vinyl). We occasionally miss something and taking each record out of the sleeve to inspect is a huge time killer.

    Maybe some have an eye for photography and can perform another time consuming chore. We explain we want a front, back, gatefold if applicable, inner sleeve of original and both sides of the label.

    I sometimes get distracted and forget to take some of these shots so I either list with less than a preferred set of pictures or have to set aside the record until I get the missing shots.

    They might also edit pictures in the computer with a keener eye.

    Maybe they are good at cleaning items up for photographing/selling. Some might be excellent repairmen (or women) or good at many other tasks that take a special touch.

    For a dedicated, long-term employee it would be well worth the “exceptions” that might need to be made.

    There are cures for just about all the diseases we have here in America. China, Israel, Germany and even Mexico have cures for Cancer and other diseases but the "FDA" will not allow them to be used here in America. Trump is shutting down the FDA because they are doing NOTHING for America.

    You thought Trump shut the government down because he wanted money to build the Wall. NO! He is shutting down Government Agencies that will NOT reopen when the government reopens. Good news! The I.R.S. is also shutting down because they are unconstitutional and will be refunding money to taxpayers later this year. How Much? How Many? Don't know, it hasn't happened yet.

    Trump said he was going to make America Great Again.

    He is actually going to make it GREATER than anyone alive has ever Known it. He is taking America back before the Deep State took it over pre-1930, but without the SLAVERY.

    No one will even know what it will be like unless they have kept up with all the Conspiracy Theories over the year that most people don't even know about or have accused them of being Lies. Everything we have been taught since we were born has been a lie. It even goes back before we were ever born.

    Trump is just flexing his muscles to show the deep state and the democrats that he WILL do whatever he wants to. He has the constitutional Authority to do it. Trump is way ahead of everyone.

    The Mueller investigation is just a smoke screen. He has been indicted and is going to GITMO for Treason when the time comes and he knows it.

    Trump is a genus! A very powerful Genus!

    Watch for the cures to come.
