Description

Reporter Chris Mahon discovered that ORC Industries, Inc., a Brownsville, TX, nonprofit, paid 20 percent of its employees less than minimum wage because they were disabled. That practice is legal, but one employee who was not disabled received less than minimum wage, and another whose disability did not affect work performance was paid under minimum. Both examples violate federal law.
