A new bill to help people with disabilities get real jobs for fair pay has been introduced in Congress. Called the Transformation to Competitive Integrated Employment Act, this essential bill phases out the discriminatory practice of paying people with disabilities less than the minimum wage. It also provides funding to support employers and states that move toward a business model that supports competitive, integrated employment for people with disabilities.
Now is the time to email your Representative and Senators and tell them to co-sponsor this vital bill. People with disabilities deserve real jobs and fair pay in the workforce. Together, we can help bring an end to this blatant economic and social discrimination.
