#GiveBenAJob: Loving Step-Mum Hopes To Find Employment For Step-Son With Down's Syndrome

A devoted step-mum has launched a Twitter campaign to find meaningful employment for her step-son Ben, who has Down's Syndrome.

Ben, 26, is a trained and qualified chef who wants to work in a bakery, but none of the kitchens where he completed work experience wanted to offer him paid work.

One tweeter said: "Wish I had my own restaurant to be able to do this. Heartbreaking at discrimination."

Going by the name FleaBagLady, Ben's step-mother has been tweeting big bakery chains and various famous people with the picture in hopes of finding a job for him.
