The most vulnerable among us are again on the bottom of the heap. Genesis Development of Storm Lake plans to discontinue redeeming bottles and cans for their nickel deposit because of changes in mental health rules. Now, handicapped people cannot work exclusively in a sheltered work activity center sorting cans. They are required to get jobs in the community so they are “integrated” better. Hence, those who are not found job placement outside the work activity center will have little productive to do.
