does anyone even try and justify why they get a lower rate of pay or society (USA ) just accepts it?
I have no use for people that exploit others. I have been under the impression that these groups are well intentioned, but like most things I am sure there are some horror stories.
You would be correct, My wife teaches Special education in the US the exploitation of disabled workers in the US is unreal.
Here is a Forbes piece mentioning Goodwill. Google will give you a bunch claiming the practices is outdated and incredibly prejudiced. People who work should be paid a fair wage.
Here is a nice video for NBC news. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X281y5dA6dU
"A provision in the Fair Labor Standard Act (FLSA) of 1938 gives employers the right to pay people with disabilities below the minimum wage. " yup 1938 is just like today.....so sadhttp://www.forbes.com/sites/susanadams/
The FLSA has been under attack for decades, no one in the disabled community thinks they deserve less money then a able person, Only able people think it is OK to discriminate against the disabled.
Wow... Just wow.
