Wages at Goodwill draw protesters to local store | The Columbia Daily Tribune - Columbia, Missouri


The National Federation of the Blind is taking on Goodwill Industries over policies at sheltered workshops that pay disabled workers a fraction of the minimum wage.
Ten protesters picketed outside the Goodwill retail store on Grindstone Parkway yesterday, calling for a boycott until wages are increased and the salary of the national president is reduced.
"We're not knocking Goodwill's philosophy or goals," said Eugene Coulter, president of the Columbia chapter of the federation. "We are saying they can still meet their goals and pay the minimum wage."
