In fact, if this Goodwill is like the one here where I live, as well
as at The Arc (formerly the Association of Retarded Citizens) where I
am a staff person, the workers are earning what is called a deviated
wage, which, much of the time, is below minimum wage. This, along
with the Federal, State, and local funding, helps programs like this
to be competitive.
