USA Today on the Minimum Wage / 14(c) Issue

Aamer Madhani, USA Today - February 8, 2014

Another good summary article updating and explaining the Minimum Wage / 14(c) issue. It’s encouraging that Labor Secretary Perez actually went on the record stating that allowing some companies to pay some disabled people sub-Minimum Wage has been “detrimental” to people with disabilities. That may be obvious to us, but right or wrong, the practice was, in fact, supposed to be beneficial for disabled people. If the U.S. Secretary of Labor believes the practice is harmful, that’s an important step towards ending it.

All the more reason to email the White House and Department of Labor. Click the link to do that now!
