Real Work For Real Pay: A Self-Advocate’s Guide to Employment Policy



This toolkit is about Employment First. Employment First means that:

  • workers with disabilities should get paid the same for the same work as workers without disabilities.

This toolkit will explain:

  1. What Employment First is
  2. Why Employment First happened
  3. What sheltered workshops are
  4. Why it is hard to get rid of sheltered workshops
  5. How we can solve problems people with disabilities have with employment
  6. Why work requirements are a bad idea
