Letter to President and Vocational Rehabilitation Calls

RCPA Letter to President
On February 12, President Obama signed an Executive Order establishing a minimum wage for federal contractors. RCPA President and CEO Richard Edley sent a letter to the President regarding possible negative impacts of this order. Some disability groups are using the executive order to advocate the elimination of critical worker protections in the Fair Labor Standards Act Section 14(c), which allows subminimum wage options.

Vocational Rehabilitation Calls
RCPA has scheduled two conference calls for members that provide vocational rehabilitation services on March 6 at 3:00 p.m. and April 3 at 3:00 p.m. The first call (March 6) offers members the opportunity for discussion regarding the President’s Executive Order, marketing sheltered workshops, and Vocational Rehabilitation Subcommittee discussion topics for the March 13 meeting. The conference call number is 800-944-8766, PIN 51399. Please RSVP to Tina Miletic.
