Letters: Help Wanted

I would like to remind employers who are looking for people to fill entry- level jobs ((ECONOMY & BUSINESS, July 20)) that there is a group out there with disabilities who are ready and willing to work. My son is 20, mentally retarded and gainfully employed at McDonald's in Bakersfield, Calif. His functioning level and self-esteem have shot sky-high, and his employer has a dependable, capable employee who is happy to be working at any wage.

Tehachapi, Calif.
