The purpose of this study was to examine two medium-sized municipalities are working to people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to go from daily activities to a paid employment in the regular labor. Work is seen as a civil right and is a measure of participa-tion in society. The Swedish government believes that the work must be available to all that includes people with intellectual disabilities. Even so, daily activities, the contribution of LSS is increases the most. The daily activities will offer incentives, development, and community and shall contribute to people get access to work or studies. I conducted five interviews based on an interview guide with managers and consultants whose field of work is daily activities with a focus on labor-oriented jobs with an individu-al investment. The areas identified during the study and who were important in the work for a wage em-ployment were: preparation for work, business contacts and step into paid work. The anal-ysis is based from the perspectives of: inclusion-exclusion and citizenship. The conclusion was that the labor-oriented works with individual placement are an alternative for those who want and have the ability to be in a workplace. The transition to paid work, however, was not common. Factors that influenced this were: that companies do not have the finan-cial means, the knowledge of providing support from employment services and lack of cooperation between different agencies, but also an uncertainty factor of the individuals themselves
