For those of you who prefer to call your Senators (rather than send 
an email or fax) here is a sample message you can leave.


Hi! My name is Rose Sloan, and I am a constituent of Senator 
Durbin.  I am calling to express my objection to language in S. 1356, 
the Workforce Investment Act.  Please ask the Senator to offer an 
amendment that will strike Section 511 of Title V., which endorses 
segregated subminimum wage training and employment, and to remove the 
language that diminishes the quality of rehabilitation services by 
transferring the Rehabilitation Services Administration from the 
Department of Education to the Department of Labor. Thank you!


Some of you may have the chance to talk to staffers in your senators' 
offices in more depth.  To learn more information about fixing WIA, 
please review our blog post at 

Thanks for all of your work. Let's #FixWIA!
