End sub-minimum wage

For almost a century, it has been completely legal for companies to pay workers with disabilities mere cents on the hour. Employees have reported receiving pennies in their paychecks, with no limit on how little they can be paid.  Build Back Better could help end that.  Now, a little-known provision in the Build Back Better Act being negotiated in Congress could help catalyze the full federal repeal of the sub minimum wage for people with disabilities.  The proposed legislation would incentivize states to move away from the sub minimum wage by providing grant funding to help companies offer those workers jobs alongside the rest of their workforce — paying minimum wage or higher.
