ReelAbilities Film Festival - Bottom Dollars

October 26, 2016 -
7:00pm to 9:00pm

Since the Fair Labor Standards Act passed in 1938, American workers have been free from labor exploitation, with one exception: people with disabilities. In 2016, nearly 250,000 people with disabilities continue to earn less than the minimum wage. Through personal stories and poignant interviews, this eye-opening documentary exposes this practice while presenting new employment alternatives with competitive wages and community inclusion for workers of all abilities.

Mary Anderson Hartley, Lead Policy & Advocacy Consultant with 21 and Able at United Way of Allegheny County, will introduce the film.

Followed by a panel discussion with local stakeholders moderated by Halle Stockton, Managing Editor, Public Source.
