LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - It's not your typical club in downtown. It's best known for its delicious corned beef hash among several other things on the menu.
But there's a lot more to this place than meets the eye.
Co-Owner of The Breakfast Club Mark Goede was struggling to find dedicated dish washers.
That's when he called Riverfront, a non-profit organization helping to employ people with disabilities.
They told him about 23-year-old Aaron Hulse and his love of washing dishes.
Goede knew he was the right man for the position and Hulse has now been working there for a little more than a year.
So far he loves it.
"Yes of course I do."
Goede says employing Hulse had a lot more to do with what he could do, versus what he couldn't.
"He's one of our hardest workers you know, the dishes are always clean."
He says he sees no difference between Hulse and other employees. And he says where businesses are struggling to fill jobs, employees like Hulse are happy to fill them.
"A lot of the jobs that some people don't want to do, and they think it's below them but I think this is a great opportunity for these kids and these people to feel like they are part of the workforce, which they are."
Goede has also hired another person through Riverfront and says he's open to employing more if the positions call for it.
