Hi Everyone!

#FixWIA Wednesday is here! It's time to email, fax, or call your 
Senators. It's also time to spread the word to everyone you know: WIA 
needs to be fixed. One way to do this is through social media.

You can follow NFB_Voice on Twitter to receive tweets from our 
national office or become a friend of the NFB on Facebook 
to read our Facebook posts. Retweet and share posts that resonate with you.

The following are sample messages you can use, and I also encourage 
you to create your own:

We worked hard to ensure that subminimum wage employment was not a 
successful VR case closure. Let's keep it that way. #FixWIA

Quality education and rehabilitation lead to competitive integrated 
employment. Keep RSA in the Dept. of Education. #FixWIA

Sec. 511 puts subminimum wages of Sec 14(c) of the FLSA into the 
#rehabact. #FixWIA focus on competitive integrated employment.

Shaking up #rehabact without data and research could adversely affect 
millions of PWDs. #FixWIA

Thank you all for your hard work. If we each do our part, WIA will be fixed.
