Documentary on Workshops for DD going out of business : "A Whole Lott More"

Trailer for "A Whole Lott More"

This is a documentary from 2013 that was shown on Link TV in Detroit today. It is about workshops for people with DD in Toledo, Ohio, being forced out of business by a bad economy, a slow and inefficient DD service system that controls the workshops, and a philosophy that everyone can work in community employment. The people who suffer most, the ones who work in the workshops, seem the least likely to be able to bounce back from unexpected closures and the loss of relationships with their employers and fellow workers. "I wish we had a miracle," says one of the workers, "but they don't happen to people like us."
