102. Goodwill is not just stores that sells used items
My SO is a super at Goodwill Industries. That is where much of the money goes, to employ many unemployable disabled person's. They can receive a paycheck that doesn't hinder their state benefits and gives them more money than they could receive otherwise. They are not subject to the demands of an ordinary workplace as far as attendance or performance and receive the kind of training that allows many to become employable in local businesses.
