The U.S. is Suing Oregon

About 2300 Oregonians work in "sheltered workshops".   The U.S. Attorney for Oregon Amanda Marshall, says the intellectually and developmentally disabled are told they have to do the work if they want needed state benefits.  A federal class action lawsuit says the state is breaking the law.  If successful it would allow qualified disabled people to get integrated employment.  The pay is better and the person would still qualify for necessary benefits.
