Employment First Principles; Disability Network/Michigan
“Disability Network/Michigan, on behalf of Michigan’s CILs, supports Employment First principles, and does not support the continued use of paying subminimum wages to people with disabilities. Employment First principles place the emphasis on community-based, integrated employment, which is the ultimate outcome.
Our approach to advocating for increased community-based employment has been through partnerships with government agencies, disability organizations and private business. We believe the starting point for systems change is through collaboration and by developing innovative approaches to solving long-standing social issues.”
