Do what's best for those most in need of help
Help to end subminimum wage for disabled people. Recently the Seattle Disability Commission voted unanimously to recommend the city end the practice, after a 4 month review. Multiple disabled people and organizations commented in favor of ending it, and we worked with the families and employers of workers making subminimum wage, all of whom consented to end it.
Recently though parents with Friends of Fircrest (an organization that believes in institutionalizing people with I/DD) has started spreading misinformation and contacting the City Council and agencies, even if they don't live in Seattle. If YOU do, please take a minute to send a short email to the Office of Labor Standards in support of wage equality for disabled people.
You have until 5:00 PM on September 6 to submit comments.
