Idealism threatens jobs for the disabled – Sunnyfield’s response

On Thursday 21 August, The Hon. Mitch Fifield, Senator and Assistant Minister for Social Services released a statement in the Australian – `Idealism threatens jobs for the disabled’. The article addresses the recent decision by the Australian Human Rights Commission which denied an application made by the Commonwealth for an exemption to the Disability Discrimination Act for certain Australian Disability Enterprises (ADEs), formerly known as sheltered workshops.  Sunnyfield wholeheartedly supports the comments made by Senator Mitch Fifield.
