Goodwill CEO resigns amid controversy


ILLINOIS (WCIA) — The now-former CEO of Land of Lincoln Goodwill submitted her resignation to the board of directors Thursday. Sharon Durbin shocked and offended many when she said tasks completed by those with disabilities were “not really a job.”

Earlier in the week, Durbin said a dozen workers with disabilities would not be paid before reversing herself Wednesday in light of backlash from the community, state lawmakers and two presidential candidates.
