A car wash owner with multiple locations says the best decision he’s ever made is to hire dozens of workers with disabilities to work at seven of his Tucson, Ariz., locations. “They bring to the table this work ethic and attitude that really lifts the entire spirit of the crew,” John Lai, owner of the Mister Car Wash chain, tells local news station KGUN9-TV.

One of the employees, a blind man named Arturo, told the station it had been nearly impossible for him to find work because of his disability. Another said the job is “like a dream,” she said. “To be here and start  [this] car wash job…where i am now, I can’t believe it.”

Lai, who has 4,000 employees at 158 locations in 13 states, says he works with local employment agencies in Arizona to find people who need work. So far he has hired about 50 people with disabilities. According to the KGUN article, which appeared Jan. 16:

John Lai tells us, this is not about charity. It’s business. He emphasized that these are hard-working, grateful, and compassionate employees, who deserve an equal chance to make a living, and change their life.
