01302018CM0599The sub-minimum wages that workers with disabilities are paid for performing the same jobs as other employees would be prohibited under a plan introduced by State Senator Daniel Biss.

Under current law, employers are allowed to pay lower wages to workers with disabilities. This means that many receive pay below the minimum wage of $8.25 per hour.

The measure is Senate Bill 201. It awaits consideration in the Senate.
