(Gary Middendorf, Daily Southtown) Aarup, 46, depends on home care assistants, sometimes called personal assistants or key aides, to live. "They get me out of bed in the morning and put me into my wheelchair," Aarup explained. Aarup works for Access Living, another organization that works to make sure that people with disabilities can "live fully-engaged and self-directed lives. "The governor has said he's going to cut the budget," Aarup said. Three different home care workers - Nicole, Herman and Jill - help Aarup, providing four to eight hours of assistance each day on a staggered schedule. Herman Godfrey, of Chicago, is paid a little more than $11 an hour for taking care of Aarup. Aarup and other members of ADAPT will roll their wheelchairs to the Capitol on Wednesday, hoping people will care. Praying that the public will feel some sense of outrage, or maybe just a little embarrassment, that people like her are forced to beg for help.

Many at the rally represented different struggles having to do with Wells Fargo's bad policies including Susan Aarup, an activist with Access Living, a group that advocates for people with disabilities.
Aarup, who uses a wheel chair, said she worked for the city for 12 years before being laid off. Aurup said finding a new job these days is tough. But what's more upsetting is how Wells Fargo discriminates against hiring people like her, she said. "The disabled community has a 70 percent unemployment rate in Chicago," said Aarup. "I'm demanding that Wells Fargo employ people with disabilities to fix this problem," she said.
