All:

Visit the following site for a recent news story on the Goodwill boycott.  Remember we are condemning the practice of paying subminimum wages to workers with disabilities.  If Goodwill adopts a policy of paying their workers with disabilities the federal minimum wage or more, it will put pressure on other subminimum wage employers to do the same.  please take the time to visit the site and to post a comment in support of our efforts.  FaceBook users should like the article, and our Twittter friends should tweet the link.

ROCKVILLE, Md. (WUSA) -- One of the most well-known non-profits in the world is paying some disabled employees less than minimum wage. The National Federation of the Blind is urging a boycott of Goodwill in hopes it hopes it will convince the organization to stop this practice, a practice that is perfectly legal under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
