CDR’s colleagues at ASAN are doing an alert this time on change.org. For those who were around last summer there were disability protectors (most of our LOCAL ADAPT Chapter) who were in front of the ABVI GoodWill in Stoneridge plaza fighting the facts that paying disability individuals a below minimum wage is discrimination!!!
I personally believe paying people under minimum wages is slave labor and the community calls this concept sheltered workshops. ManyThis means these disability individuals separated from normal work environment and make them earn under the minimum wage requirements. In my humble opinion, just to keep them away and busy from the community.
Below link has a petition on Change.org, so they may try to sign you up to receive their emails. If you get subscribed to something you don’t want, you can always unsubscribe – it’s federal law.
If Goodwill can afford to pay its executives such exorbitant salaries, it can afford to do right by disabled workers. Help us hold them accountable. Using the link below, you can send a message to Goodwill’s senior leadership telling them that until they end the use of subminimum wage, they won’t have your donations or your support. Americans with disabilities deserve better. Shame on you, Goodwill Industries.
