Speaking out for People with
 Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

VOR Position on Vocational Work Centers and 14(c) Wage Certificates

VOR opposes the elimination or phasing out of facility-based Vocational Work Centers (formerly referred to as sheltered workshops) and proposals to discontinue the issuing of specialized wage certificates as provided under Section 14(c) of the Federal Labor Standards Act.

VOR would like to thank the Issues/Oversight Committee for their work on this matter.

We ask our members to print and distribute these materials wherever they may help.

We need to increase opportunities for all people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and autism, not eliminate opportunities for some individuals in favor of creating more opportunities for others.
