Were I the Franchisee I’d be doing damage control right now.
I have employed several folks with Down’s Syndrome over the years. I found them all, without fail, to be hard workers with great attendance. Yes, they required more training, and more supervision, but they were loyal, hard working employees who were valued and needed. Most of mine, I am proud to say, went on to bigger and better things after working for me and learning that they COULD hold jobs, and with that confidence, grew into stronger people. All most of them need is direction and goal.
