As you’ll see in the following NBC report, Goodwill pays many disabled employees well below minimum wage while CEOs and executives make millions and the non-profit, who gets tax exempt status, grosses $5 billion dollars each year–and it’s all perfectly legal.
What’s the answer from Goodwill’s president to the allegations of unfairness and ridiculous levels of wage disparity? Well, that the people at the top are innovative job creators, of course! He also accuses anyone who demands fairer pay of being “elitists.”
What do you think? Should these disabled workers just be happy they can get a job at all, or is this blatant exploitation? Let us know in the comments below.
