In sheltered workshops employees:

Make less than the federal minimum wage, often less than $1 per hour
Are often segregated and isolated from the community 
Do not have the benefits of workers’ compensation
Do not have the privilege of collective bargaining
Are exploited and trapped in cycle of poverty. 

Labor is a disability rights civil issue.”
