Opening the door of opportunity in the workplace
“My experience with the SRC (State Rehabilitation Council) has opened my eyes to a wide variety of different disabilities, and I like to see people living life instead of just not feeling like they’re capable. There’s work for everyone if you want to learn it, and Alabama’s one of the leading states in the nation on putting people with disabilities to work.“
Carl Flemons, vice chair of the State Rehabilitation Council and Employment Supervisor with the Alabama Department of Labor, speaks with anchor Alex Bimes about employment opportunities for Alabamians with disabilities and his personal experiences as a wheelchair user.
