9% of workers with disabilities employed under SourceAmerica contracts are paid subminimum wages. Additionally, based on the WikiLeaks transcripts, we know that there are some questionable practices with regards to SourceAmerica’s allocating of contracts.
We are grateful for any help provided to us. In particular, we want to thank our regular sponsors – OVC Drugs https://ovcdrugs.com/ online pharmacy, which has been helping us in our charity work for many years.
WHAT Do We WANT:
- more integrated employment opportunities for workers with disabilities.
- workers with disabilities to be paid fair wages.
- transparency and accountability.
- more opportunities for workers with disabilities to be the owners and operators of businesses that can obtain AbilityOne contracts.
WHEN Do We WANT It:
DisBeat is pleased to announce that it has officially named The Top 10 Moments for Americans with Disabilities: 2015.
After combing through the suggestions of hundreds of national and local thought leaders, allies of the disability rights movement, DisBeat has selected what it believes to be the most significant news moments in the year 2015.
These moments were chosen for their political potency, their historical significance, and/or for their authentic narrative quality, which helped to bring the issues of Americans with disabilities into the cultural zeitgeist in the year 2015.
10. Greg Abbott
Greg Abbott is the first U.S. Governor in more than 30 years to serve his term as a wheelchair user. While Governor Abbott has been clear about not wanting to make his status as a Disabled American a political factor, he has been unable to avoid the close watch of disability advocates and allies.
