"Bottom Dollars" Film Screening and Release of 
"Living on a Dime" Report

Do we want all people to have the chance to get a job for fair pay in their own communities, or do we want some people to be separated, exploited, and robbed of their chance to seize the American dream for themselves?

The Texas Center for Disability Studies at the University of Texas Austin and Disability Rights Texas (DRTx)  invite you to an exclusive screening of the new documentary film, "Bottom Dollars" and a media event announcing the release of a DRTx investigative report about sheltered workshops in Texas, "Living on a Dime and Left Behind."

The movie, produced by Rooted in Rights (the video advocacy program at Disability Rights Washington), highlights how thousands of Americans are being paid LESS than minimum wage - as little as a few cents per hour in some cases - because of an 86-year-old labor law that makes it legal.

The  DRTx "Living on a Dime and Left Behind" report focuses on workers with disabilities in Texas who are harmed by this law.

Co-hosted by: the Arc of Texas, ADAPT of Texas, Coalition of Texans with Disabilities, Personal Attendant Coalition of Texas, Texas Advocates, and Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities
