Danny, an MRI Day Vocational Training participant, works in MRI’s license plate production.
Danny has been working in license plate production since he graduated high school. He performs several different jobs involved in the manufacturing of license plates, such as placing stickers and packaging. However, he prefers to work on the take off line. The take off line is a physically demanding job that requires Danny to be on his feet 8-10 hours a day.
Danny also assists Sandy, the LP Packaging Foreman, with training new staff. In fact, Danny even helped train Sandy when she was first hired 15 years ago! Because of MRI’s job training and placement, Danny is able to live independently by paying for his mortgage and household bills. He has also grown in both his confidence and responsibility. He takes pride in the work he does.
“Danny has a fantastic work ethic and rarely, if ever, calls off. He is adaptable and flexible and accepts any job assignment offered to him.” -Sue, Danny’s Case Manager
Producing the license plates at MRI has given people like Danny a chance to gain independence through a job. Since 1983 MRI has produced all of the license plates for the state of Illinois, meeting state production needs and delivery schedules.
