Employers are overlooking a valuable resource in failing to hire people with disabilities, according to Larree Renda, a Safeway executive. "Safeway is committed to raising awareness and encouraging other employers to tap this vast talent pool all too commonly known as the 'disabled.' As our nation regains its economic footing and we celebrate the anniversary of ADA [Americans with Disabilities Act], it is worth remembering that economic recovery should, at its core, include all segments of the population -- that along with a paycheck, gainful employment affords a priceless measure of self worth," Renda writes.
