'Ability for Hire' really hits home for me.
My mom and dad were both deaf, but their inability to hear did not prevent them from working to support my sisters and me. They taught us that all work has dignity and that idleness is not an option. Their disabilities actually led them to develop higher levels of determination and persistence. The time has come for South Dakotans to work together to ensure people with disabilities have the opportunity to do what they want to do – work alongside their friends and neighbors and provide for themselves and their families. As your Governor, I encourage South Dakota employers to help make this happen.
