📙 Disability Servitude: From Peonage to Poverty by Ruthie-Marie Beckwith (auth.) — free epub


Disability Servitude traces the history of peonage—unpaid, forced labor—by people with disabilities in public and private institutions. Describing the work they performed and lawsuits filed to get paid, it links that history with the continued segregation and exploitation of workers with disabilities that are paid far less than minimum wage.
