Published on May 20, 2014

On April 24, 2014 the National Federation of the Blind and Rochester ADAPT participate in a protest at the Goodwill Store located on Dewey Avenue in Greece, NY.

Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act allows entities to apply for special wage certificates which authorize them to pay people with disabilities less than the minimum wage. The National Federation of the Blind believes that no person with a disability should be paid less than minimum wage.

Goodwill is one of the best known organizations that has a Section 14(c) certificate and uses it. The official ribbon cutting ceremony of their new store was disrupted in an effort to raise awareness about this injustice.

Gidget Hopf who is both the Chief Executive Officer, President of Goodwill of the Finger Lakes and Chair of the Board for Goodwill International has the ability to stop this injustice, but chooses not to.
