Good Will's saying that people work there to go on to other work is 
absolutely not true; some disabled people stay there for years, earning 
subminimum wages.

advice from my cats: "meow when you feel like it."
The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be
understood. The best way to understand people is to listen to them.
