I am so excited to be heading to West Virginia tonight. Anyone who has visited there knows it is a beautiful state (as John Denver knew in his famous song). But did you know that there are some great things happening economically? That the government, with leadership such as with Senator Manchin's office, is working really hard to promote thousands of open jobs there, recruit new industry and businesses and put Government, non-profits and for-profits together to help West Virginia working families? It's true and it's pretty exciting to see commitment like this that crosses boundaries. If you haven't checked out jobs in WV, I suggest you do.
We will be rolling out a section of Jobcase just for WV this week (and already plans under way to keep improving it as we roll into September). I'll post more about it later. But first a question:
What's your favorite thing bout West Virginia? Hopefully some West Virginians can offer some thoughts, but I welcome anyone who has visited there to share as well... #AlmostHeaven #WestVirginia #WV #share #opportunity #StrongerTogether

Making meaningful jobs for people with disabilities a reality in West Virginia is exactly what state Delegate Dianna Graves, R- Kanawha wants and has sponsored a bill to help make it happen!
“West Virginia has one of the highest percentage based on population of people that are disabled and we are the lowest in percentage based on people that are gainfully employed,” Graves said.
Integrated employment means people with disabilities can work in their communities for a competitive wage.
West Virginian Christy Black’s 17-year-old daughter Gracie has Down syndrome. Christy, an advocate for the bill, works with the West Virginia Developmental Disabilities Council.
“Society does, unfortunately, have lower expectations about what a person with a disability can or can’t do,” Black said.
She said Gracie worked at a store in Culloden, the community where she lives. Through working there, Gracie found out she enjoys flowers but also found out a lot of things about herself, too.
“She also found that guess what? ... She wants to work, she wants to get married, she wants to build a house, she wants everything that everybody else wants,” Black said.
With the bill’s passage, Christy’s work begins to educate the public about what people with disabilities can do and to change expectations so thousands with disabilities like her daughter Gracie can be in their communities doing what they love.
