Defending equal employment for people with disabilities

Did you know there are Americans earning as little as a dollar an 
hour, just because they are disabled?  Their work isn’t substandard, 
but their wages are!

Congress is trying to expand the practice of sub-minimum wage jobs 
for the disabled.  Join the National Federation of the Blind of 
Oregon on the 21st anniversary of Americans with Disabilities Act, 
July 26th, to learn how sub-minimum wages force the disabled to live 
in poverty, dependent upon meager government entitlements, while 
their non-disabled overseers earn lush salaries!

Discover the fraud, abuse, and worker intimidation that have kept 
these American sweatshops open for decades under our noses!

Learn how American jobs are being outsourced, not to foreign 
companies who exploit their workers, but to so-called American 
“non-profits” who exploit the disabled!

And find out how you can stop it!

What:	Rally to end sub-minimum wages
Where:	Oregon State Capital Steps
	Salem, Oregon
When:	July 26, 2011 from 11am to 1pm
