From the time I was a child, I can remember people saying, " Well, give it to Good Will." I will not accept that those people knew what I found out today about Good Will, and I am furious. At this date and time, how in the name of sanity can any corporation, for-profit or not justify a wage of $0.28 per hour. Even more so how can they justify using an exclusionary rule for a 1930" fair labor law to do it ?
Yet, Goodwill does exactly this as the attached video link will show you. Goodwill paying disabled workers pennies an hour | Watch XFINITY Videos Online | News | Comcast Imagine a company with a pay scale that runs the gamut from $-.38 per hour to $1.1 mill per year.
I used to like to browse Goodwill and often found things that were useful or completed an old set of things, like a replacement dish for a set that was missing one. But I will never again set foot in a Goodwill Store until this pay inequity is rectified. Being disabled or physically handicapped is not an excuse for receiving slave wages. The loophole in the 1930's law that allows it needs to be closed permanently.
