SAITAMA – Sales of bread made by a welfare workplace for persons with disabilities in Saitama City have fallen sharply due to the effects of the spread of new coronavirus infections, which resulted in the closing of one of their childcare centers.

At the “Kirishiki Joint Workplace”, a welfare workplace in Chuo-ku, Saitama City, about 30 people with disabilities are working on bread for school lunches.

Nine people made bread dough on this day and took out the baked bread and ‘coppé pan’ bread from the oven and put it in a bag.

It is said that at this workplace, the bread sales will drop to less than half due to the effects of the spread of the new coronavirus infection at the nursery schools of the business partners, which may affect the payment of wages in the future.

“If this situation continues, we may lose our motivation to work and we may not be able to pay wages. So far, there is no support from the government, but there is some kind of support. I want you to make a hand. “
