> As many of you know there has been a lot of discussion in St. Louis regarding fair wages for people with disabilities. Last month, a board bill was passed that increased the minimum wage and ensured that people with disabilities also received at least the minimum wage. However, since then, an alderman has introduced a bill to reinstate the exemption that allows people with disabilities to be paid subminimum wages. This bill will come up for a vote on Friday, October 2. Over the next thirty-six hours, we need to show our support for Mayor Francis Slay (@MayorSlay) and Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia (@Chryssi) by tweeting them to reaffirm that they did the right thing. Everyone deserves #fairswages.

> The National Federation of the Blind knows that blindness is not the characteristic that defines you or your future. Every day we raise the expectations of blind people, because low expectations create obstacles between blind people and our dreams. You can live the life you want; blindness is not what holds you back.
