> Workers With Disabilities Receive Back Wages
> Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona Inc. paid $17,501 in back wages to 39 workers with disabilities in Tucson after an investigation by the Wage and Hour Division. The investigation established that Goodwill failed to meet special minimum wage provisions under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Investigators found that Goodwill failed to pay the affected workers — tasked primarily with packaging sleeping masks and baby dental wipes — the correct, commensurate piece-rate wages. In addition, employees paid by the hour for shredding paper were not paid the proper, prevailing wage rate.
