Greetings East Bay Chapter!

Social media has been abuzz with news of yesterday's protests held nationwide at Goodwill stores demanding fair wages for workers with disabilities. East Bay and other affiliate members protested outside an Oakland location and NFBC president Mary Willows met with the store manager to express our concerns. Below is a link to an  article shared by the Iowa affiliate and many more abound. Tweeters can also search #FairWages for fun and informative play-by-play from protests all over the country.
