Idaho Non-Profit Helps Connect Employers To Job Seekers With Disabilities

Witco - Facebook

Finding a new job can be difficult and it can be particularly challenging for individuals with disabilities. Non-profit company Witco has made it a goal to place these individuals in good jobs where they can support themselves. However, the company is in danger of losing some of its funding, which would mean a drop in the number of employees the company can place. CEO Maureen Stokes joins Idaho Matters and explains the effect of a funding drop on her company.
