Educate employers on the benefits of hiring people with disabilities

  • A Riverview family says more needs to be done to educate employers about the benefits of hiring people with different abilities in New Brunswick.

    Twenty-two-year-old David Tatta has been struggling to find work for months. Living on a disability pension and social assistance, he says he’d much rather be working.

    If he could find someone to hire him.

    “So I can have better savings,” he said.

    Tatta dreams of being a chef one day, but at this point he’d settle for just about any kind of kitchen work.

    “Mopping floors and washing dishes,” he said.

    Tatta is one of thousands of people trying to find work in New Brunswick. But he’s not like everyone else. He’s autistic, which his mother Sharon Joseph says is making it even harder to find someone willing to hire him.
