Twenty-Two Cents an Hour: Disability Rights and the Fight to End Subminimum Wages

Doug Crandell Date: 11/17/2022 (2:00pm - 2:45pm ET)
Doug Crandell, MFA, Institute on Human Development and Disability, University of Georgia

Join us for an informal session discussing the past, present and future of employment and the disability industrial complex. We will highlight the creation of “the minimum, subminimum wage” in 1986; the scathing testimonies and hearings; the millions spent to fight the Fair Wages for Workers with Disabilities Act in 2012; and other milestones related to subminimum wages. From this foundational platform, we will discuss and analyze HR 2373, the Transformation to Competitive Integrated Employment Act. Finally, we will spend time thinking about the ethics of evidence-based practices in disability and employment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify the historical milestones related to FLSA and 14 (c ).

  • Participants will understand the disability rights advancements in the U.S. related to employment.

  • Participants will be able to discern the role lobbying and trade groups have played in the practice of subminimum wages.

  • Participants will understand the current bill in Congress (HR 2373) related to subminimum wages.
