Goodwill Advocates for People with Disabilities
Recent media reports have generated interest in the U.S. Department of Labor’s Special Minimum Wage Certificate and its use by more than 3,400 employers throughout the country, including some Goodwill agencies, to employ people with multiple or significant disabilities.
However, activist groups and online sources have painted an inaccurate picture of Goodwill and our use of the Certificate. All employees of Goodwill Industries of Northwest North Carolina are paid ABOVE minimum wage.
We welcome the concern that many Americans have shown in improving employment opportunities and quality of life for others in their community, which has been a key element of Goodwill’s mission for more than a century. As North America’s leading nonprofit provider of employment training, job placement services and other community-based programs for people with severe barriers to employment, Goodwill takes these concerns seriously.
