    So businesses object to a program that helps people with disabilities find employment ? That makes businesses feel unwelcome ? So much so that the name of room in the Department of Labour, a small acknowledgement of the extra hurdles that those with disabilities go through to obtain and keep employment, is a problem ? WOW ! As a person with multiple disabilities, that is discouraging to say the least. If they feel unwelcome because of the name of a room, how much more unwelcome do they feel towards hiring us ?

                      Very sad for my brothers and sisters with disabilities in Maine,

      had to change all or none. There is one more conference room not included in the list, the Kennebec Room, which is innocuous here: it is the name of a river and county.

        with disabilities find and keep employment is not innocuous ? Not arguing with you, but with their mindset.
