Dear Bimbo Ocasio Cortez, Here is NOT one of your constituents!


Atlanta McDonald’s employee with Down syndrome honored for 27 years on the job

Chris Campbell is known as the Happy Meal expert, and now, 
after 27 years, he's being rewarded for his work at the 
McDonald's. Campbell, who has Down syndrome, was 
(DSAA) recently for his dedication to his work at an 
Atlanta-area McDonald’s, where he has been employed 
for nearly three decades.

“I like to clean, mopping, cleaning the tables and making 
Happy Meal boxes. I love the Happy Meal boxes,” 
he told WXIA-TV in Atlanta. “Every time I give them 
the boxes it makes each person happy.”
As part of the honor, Campbell received a large, 
gold star-shaped trophy that read, 
“Congratulations to our Golden Star of 27 years! 
Chris Campbell.”
Campbell’s recognition comes at the same time Walmart has decided to change the requirements for greeters by expanding 
their duties, which seems to have largely affected workers with disabilities who may not be able to meet the new requirements, 
a report from NPR said.
“People with Down syndrome share the same hopes and 
dreams as everybody else,” DSAA said in a statement. 
“With advocacy and the right support we as a community 
can turn their dreams into a reality.”
Since 1983, the life expectancy for people with Down syndrome has increased by 35 years from 25 to 60 years old, DSAA says. There are 400,000 people in the U.S. with Down syndrome, according to their website.
