Use of Section 14(c) certificates and observed trends

14 (c) and Employment First go together

Organizations that use the 14(c) are for Employment First. There is not one organization that I know that does not want the best possible job for the individuals it serves. And if a Community Job is the right fit, and it can be found, then there is no one that would not want that for an individual. BUT, don't take away the opportunities that are provided by using piece rate wage payments. Don't take away someone's CHOICE just because you don't like it.


Everyone already has the choice to pursue a community job. Taking away the 14(c) option doesn't impact this option at all.
