In July of 2014, President Obama signed the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act intended to tighten the conditions under which people with disabilities could do sheltered work for less than minimum wage. Now Disability Scoop reports that the U.S. Department of Education is promulgating new rules to implement that law. The intent of the rules is to integrate people with disabilities into competitive work through the use of educational and vocational support services.
