The Lunch Lady was recently featured in Season 1, Episode 6 of the documentary series, Employable Me.
This is a show about job seekers who prove that having a physical disability or neurological condition should not make them unemployable. Each of the six one-hour episodes follows two separate job candidates from the Greater Toronto Area or Montreal who want nothing more than to find steady employment.
Some have never had a job before and some have applied for hundreds of jobs with no luck! It isn’t always easy but each job seeker is determined to overcome their challenges, help change employers’ perceptions and find their passion.
