FURIOUS disabled workers protested yesterday against the boss whose report led to the Con-Dem Government closing their factories.
A group of workers from Remploy picketed a conference where Liz Sayce, chief executive of Disability Rights UK, was speaking.
Remploy chief shop steward Phil Branann said:
“We think it is an insult to disabled people and society in general for her to attend that meeting.
“Employers won’t employ disabled people – they are three times more likely to be unemployed.
“If it’s so easy to find employment, why not wait until the workers have found jobs before closing the factories?”
