National Federation of the Blind Commends Action
Congressman Cliff Stearns (R-FL) and Congressman Tim Bishop (D-NY) today introduced the Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act of 2011 (H.R.
3086). The bill would phase out Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards
Act (FLSA), which allows employers holding special wage certificates to pay
their workers with disabilities less than the federal minimum wage.
