In partnership with Families Together and Stepping Stones the Self Advocate Leadership Network – Moscow Chapter is putting on its 5th Annual Disability Awareness Film Festival. And showing the documentary “Bottom Dollars”.
Synopsis of the Documentary:
“How would you like to work for two weeks, and come out with a $6 check?” That’s a reality for almost 250,000 Americans with disabilities who are legally paid below the minimum wage. Many work in segregated workplaces called sheltered workshops, hidden from the rest of the public. In Bottom Dollars, stories from across the country point to the need to end this antiquated system and embrace better alternatives that promote inclusive workplaces and fair wages.
