Fair Wage Law Debated

Eugene Hollander was quoted on August 9, 2012 on Northwestern University's Medill Reports website concerning a proposed bill which would eliminate an exemption under the Fair Labor Standards Act, (FLSA).  Under the FLSA, certain employers are entitled to pay disabled workers less than the minimum wage.  The proposed bill would eliminate that exemption, and phase out certificates over the next few years which have been granted by the government.
