"You already get the best parking spots at work. How greedy can you people be?"
Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act states that if you're impaired in some way that might affect your ability to work, minimum wage doesn't apply to you. An employer can pay you anything they want, and in some places, that means as little as 6 cents an hour. In some states, you can actually earn more right now by finding two recyclable cans. On top of physical disabilities, the act also allows your employer to pay you next to nothing if you suffer from a range of conditions which include "mental illness, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, alcoholism, and drug addiction."
To be fair, the intention isn't to screw over disabled people; it's trying to help them. The theory is that there's no way an employer would hire a disabled person over someone able-bodied unless there was a price incentive. Of course, many corporations interpret this generous law as "Awesome! Legal slavery!"

In Iowa, a turkey slaughterhouse named Henry's Turkey Service took advantage of 14(c) to hire a whole crew of men with various mental and developmental disabilities to run the plant. Over 30 years of operation, the plant made great profits due to the fact that they paid their workers $65 a month. Every weekday, workers got up at 3 a.m. to disembowel dead turkeys. There were no sick days, and one employee was forced to work while suffering through throat cancer and the side effects of chemotherapy. All of this is basically legal, somehow.
