Thanks so much. This type of help is what we need in order to get our
message heard. Make it simple to do and we'll do it. My letter has gone out.


Blessings in Jesus' name
Philippians 4:6-7
"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and
petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

I am a disability rights attorney from California.  I regularly represent
people with disabilities in matters relating to employment and
rehabilitation.  Many of my clients would benefit greatly if the subminimum
wage exception were eliminated.  I urge DOL to act to remove this outdated
provision.  It is no longer necessary.  I find that it serves as an
incentive for exploitation of disabled people more than it benefits those
working in programs that pay subminimum wages.
