Howdy Fellow Federationists:

On May 28, 2019, the US Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) began a national online dialogue regarding the use of special wage certificates under section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards At. The Department of Labor will use the information gathered through this forum to "provide ODEP an overview of Section 14(c) at the state and national levels."

As a result, those who are benefitting from the exploitation of workers with disabilities are attempting to overwhelm the online dialogue to over-represent national support for sub minimum wages. It is critical that our voices be heard to counteract this false narrative. Please visit https://14cdialogue.ideascale.com/ and:
