Michigan woman discusses employment, disabilities with President Obama
At the start of our State of Opportunity Project we spoke with Leatrice Fullerton, a single mother with two children.
She earned a master’s degree in social work, but had difficulty finding employment when we last spoke with her. Fullerton also faces the additional challenge of being blind. The good news is that she now has two part-time jobs.
Today, Fullerton participated in a Google chat hosted by President Obama. She asked the president what his plans were for including people with disabilities in the work force.
All Things Considered host Jennifer White spoke with Fullerton.
