Senators Request DOL Changes to Subminimum Wage Waivers

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and her colleagues requested information and policy changes from Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on the Department of Labor’s (DOL) oversight and enforcement of employers that use 14(c) waivers to hire workers with disabilities. These waivers pay less than the federal minimum wage. The senators also expressed support for phasing out the waivers.
