Session Description

bottom dollars: grey

"Bottom Dollars" exposes the sub-minimum wages and segregated work environments for people with disabilities through personal stories and expert interviews. It also presents clear employment alternatives with competitive wages and community inclusion.

The film is now available for free to university centers who wish to host screenings and hold panel discussions to help raise awareness and educate audiences about this important topic.

For more information or to host a screening, visit and request to a free DVD.

Trailer available at this link.

"Bottom Dollars educates in a thoughtful and factually based way about the history, and current use, of sub-minimum wage. Real stories create an understanding of the options available when people are supported to pursue employment they enjoy, and get paid a fair wage for! Bottom Dollars is a great conversation starter about inclusive employment, fair wages, and how disability advocates are moving equity forward -even when laws do not follow." 

- Amy Sharp, Director at Texas Center for Disability Studies at the University of Texas at Austin (TUCEDD
