Subject: [Ohio-talk] Goodwill Informational Protest--Cleveland, OH
The Cleveland and Cuyahoga County Chapters had a combined Goodwill
Informational Protest at our local East side store. Although we were small
in number, we carried signs and gave out fliers. We alerted people to the
injustice of paying workers with disabilities subminimum wages, and those
with whom we spoke did not venture into the store.
We all did good work, and congratulations to Robert Kihm, a relatively new
member of the Cuyahoga Chapter, whose fervor and excitement was exemplified
by the highest number of fliers distributed to the general public.
It is due to events such as these that we can enlighten public perception on
the plight faced by workers with disabilities, and I and others, no doubt,
will be there to rally in support of eliminating injustices such as these.
