Join the Employment First Community of Practice on July 12 from 3:00 – 4:30 pm, Eastern Time for the webinar “State Efforts to Phase Out Subminimum Wages: Lessons Learned from Three States.” As of June 2023, fourteen states have passed and signed legislation ending 14(c) or subminimum wage practices. The webinar plans to highlight the efforts in the states of Tennessee, Virginia and Washington to phase out subminimum wage practices both before and after the passing of legislation to end 14(c) in each state. Representatives from each state including policy leaders, advocates, state agencies and providers will discuss their process for both passing legislation as well as the subsequent efforts taken. Additionally, state representatives will discuss the challenges faced and the progress made in maximizing the impact of the legislation for the disabled community.
