The Arc of Nebraska is a founding coalition member of The Raise the Wage Nebraska Petition Drive that will move to raise the Nebraska Minimum Wage to $15 per hour by 2026.
This is centered in our policy statement that “we believe that people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities (IDD) can be employed in the community alongside people without disabilities and earn competitive wages. They should be supported to make informed choices about their work and careers and have the resources to seek, obtain, and be successful in community employment.”
By raising the wage to a livable standard we will ensure the opportunity for independence for people with disabilities. This will also help to ensure that our valuable providers in particular Direct Support Professionals (DSP) will be paid a quality living wage for the vital work that they do to support people with disabilities.
