It is a non-profit, tax exempt organization that gets millions in government funds. Last year they grossed 5 billion dollars and their CEO's make from 400,000 to 1.1 million a year in salary. They pay their disabled workers as low as 22 cents an hour. They feel they are giving them a better quality of life by giving them a jobs. To determine what they will pay each person, they stand next to them with a stopwatch and count how many pieces of clothing they can hang up in a designated time. One blind lady wanted to answer the phone and take messages, but they don't allow them to do that kind of work. It is disgusting and humiliating.
