Transition to Competitive Integrated Employment Act (MT UCEDD)

"No one should be paid less than minimum wage simply because they have a disability," said Martin Blair, Executive Director of the Rural Institute for Inclusive Communities at the University of Montana. Blair was referring to the bi-partisan, Transformation to Competitive Integrated Employment Act (TCEIA) introduced last week in the U.S. Senate by Montana's Senator Steve Daines and Pennsylvania's Senator Bob Casey. Daines and Casey are leading a national effort to end employment discrimination against people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The bill will support employers transitioning to paying competitive, fair wages to people with disabilities.
