GREENVILLE, South Carolina (WHNS) - A South Carolina restaurant that employs special needs people is gaining some attention for a sign on its door.

Amanda Cartagine, the owner of a Pizza Inn in Greenville, said a customer complained about one of her special needs employees. The customer asked her to hang a sign to alert customers about the worker.

So she did, saying she hires all of God’s children.

Cartagine said her employees are like her kids, so when a customer was being rude, she made her rebuttal with the sign.

The sign reads “We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer and hire all of God’s children.”

It's received a lot of attention on social media and at the store.

Cartagine hopes it can be a lesson to everyone to be more accepting of people from all walks of life.

“I want to be able to communicate in a way that is not overly rude but gets my point across. It was the first thing that came to my mind,” Cartagine said.
