February 5th—Good Paying Jobs for Self Advocates
Having a job means that individuals with DD can be productive citizens, contributing to our economy by paying taxes, while also providing valuable services. Being gainfully employed builds self-esteem, but our state still allows people with disabilities to be paid sub-minimum wages, as little as 2 cents an hour! Join self-advocates, families and employment service providers from Community Employment Alliance (CEA) as we work to make wages equitable. CEA will hold a rally in the capital right afterwards.
