VIDEO: Markell focuses on employing individuals with disabilities in weekly address

In this week's address, Governor Markell searches for innovative practices to employ individuals with disabilities.

Markell notes that his effort is not about charity, but it's about the strengths of the disabilities community.

"No one has recognized that better than Thorkil Sonne, the founder of a Danish company called Specialisterne that has recently expanded to Delaware. His company helps put autistic adults to work, recognizing that they can not only hold down jobs, but in some fields that require tedious tasks, they are extremely well-qualified," said Markell.

Markell will join Thorkil next week in Delaware for a special announcement.
