Minnesota man's fight for a promotion spurs disability rights debate, galvanizes coworkers

 


After years of searching, Bradford Teslow thought he had finally found a job that would pay him a livable wage and offer him a shot at advancement.

In 2013, a large disability services organization, Opportunity Partners, offered Teslow, 58, a position at a new state-of-the-art packaging plant in Bloomington. Teslow, who has cognitive disabilities brought on by two head injuries, leapt at the opportunity to prove himself on an assembly line among people without disabilities.
