“Bottombottom-dollars-big Dollars”, a Rooted in Rights original documentary, exposes the exploitation of nearly 250,000 people with disabilities in the U.S. that are legally being paid less than the minimum wage, on average, less than two dollars an hour. The documentary calls for the phase out of the unfair practice of sub-minimum wages and sheltered workshops, and offers solutions for fair wages and inclusive employment.  The documentary features Hugh Bertolin’s personal story and an interview with Jim Larson, CEO. 

The goal of Bottom Dollars is to empower advocates and policymakers looking at the needs of workers and start focusing on giving workers with disabilities the basic protection of a minimum wage.
