WI DWD Partners With Walgreens To Create New Jobs For Disabled

The Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development announced they have partnered with Walgreens to create a training program and job opportunities for those who have disabilities.

The program, named the Retail Employees with Disabilities Initiative or REDI, was kicked off at a Milwaukee Walgreens last month. According to the press release, the program was first piloted in 2010 in Texas and expanded to New York and Connecticut. Wisconsin is one of twelve states in the first phase of launching this program on the national level. Officials hope to have it in all states by the end of 2013.

The unemployment rate for people with disabilities trends higher than for people without disabilities. Two local organizations, Adonai Employment Service, Inc. and Goodwill Industries were recruited to work with Walgreens on this program.

If you or your loved one has become disabled on the job, you may not be receiving all the compensation due you. Contact our Wisconsin workers’ compensation office today to discuss your situation with Monika Hartl.
