Dad opens car wash after failing to find job for son with autism, hires over 80 differently abled employees

The story of how a dad opened a car wash after failing to find a job for his son with autism has warmed people’s hearts.

At the age of 24, Andrew D'Eri, like others of his age, started searching for a job. However, he found it more challenging than others to find a job because many places refused to hire an employee with autism. Reportedly, that is when his dad and elder brother came up with an idea that not only helped Andrew get employed but also provided employment opportunities for over 80 people with similar conditions. His family decided to open a car wash.
