Feds Recommend End to Subminimum Wage

A key federal agency is calling for an end to a controversial government policy allowing some employers to pay workers with disabilities less than minimum wage.
In a report that’s expected to be sent to President Barack Obama on Thursday, the National Council on Disability is recommending that a provision of the Fair Labor Standards Act — section 14(c) — which allows companies to obtain government permission to pay so-called subminimum wage be eliminated over the course of six years.
