I am a little bit confused about the non-profit company Goodwill of South Florida.
According to the July 4 story, The making of Old Glory, the combined revenue amounts to a grand total of $51 million.
If the main goal of the company is to help people with disabilities, then why not give all of them a respectable hourly pay, instead of using the “gap pay,” which allows Goodwill, by law, to use the excuse to pay a lot less, but “we train them for a spot in the workforce.”
It doesn’t matter that only 100 workers out of 1,000 are not being paid minimum wage.

What happens to the rest of the revenue millions? I don’t see anywhere donations given by Goodwill to any charity. Not in South Florida anyway.
