All inquiries will be acknowledged and should be addressed Box 26 The Lethbridge Herald Take advantage of the handicapped. If you hire people. And want committed you should be hiring the handicapped worker. the word is misleading. When a worker is disabled he has many skills remaining that maximize ability and are not affected by his disability. In that he is not handicapped at all. He is an equal competitor at his skill And he asks no favors Most disabled people have developed new skills. They show incredibly high standards of productivity. They appreciate their jobs. And they are stable and reliable. They have a little extra to prove. All they ask for is the chance. A good businessman can spot a solid investment. Hiring the disabled is smart business. Our case histories prove this. Contact our Vocational Rehabilitation Department and see what we have to offer. Then take advantage of it. WORKERS' COMPENSATION BOARD-ALBERTA 9912-107th .-423-6110 ;
