Real Work for Real Pay

Too many people with disabilities remain unemployed or stuck in dead-end "jobs" that pay them less than the minimum wage. The Client Assistance Program (CAP) and Protection and Advocacy (P&A) Network are working to change these outcomes, providing advocates to people with disabilities who want real jobs. NDRN advocates for changes in laws to further the ability of people with disabilities to work in real jobs for fair pay.
