Good afternoon publish0x community. And this article I'm going to take a little bit of a look into the life of a disabled person.
Basically I'm going to start off with an experience that happened to me today, as a person with a documented disability nothing too inhibiting I walk with a slight limp.
I lost my most recent job due to covid, I worked there for 4 years and because of it I lost it just like that that was over a year ago now been looking for work for months something finally comes along waxing the floors of big businesses.
Long story short about 3 hours in, I couldn't do it anymore the walking was too much the store was gigantic to put it into perspective the size of a Walmart Supercenter after I already doing five whole laps of the store with a dry broom you're expected to go back again with a small broom and get the small pieces of debris. And then after that you have to go over the whole thing again with a floor waxer which is another two to three laps of the store. In the end they expect you to walk the store roughly a dozen times in a 4 hour shift.
But let me get to the point sorry for getting sidetracked. After throwing in the towel so to speak I went to the trainer and said I wasn't sure that it was going to work out. This man looks at me and says. " from the moment I seen you walking in here, I knew it wasn't going to work out ".
Granted that maybe the man was right who knows, but I don't think that anyone should ever go around saying things like that I'm a fan of equal rights the world has been so much about skin color these days. but in my personal opinion it doesn't matter who you are, what you look like, what you've been through in the past. If you're a good person then you're a good person. Bottom line.
So I guess my question is, am I right to feel offended? I feel like any disabled person should have the benefit of the doubt I don't care if I went in there in a wheelchair if I feel like I can do it then I should be able to try.
The Canadian government's disability system is a joke it really does not do a whole lot for anyone if you try to live solely off of that, you're doomed to a life of mediocrity, and probably living with somebody else. With that being said always on the hunt for something part-time just to be able to get by.
So at the end of the day I think that it might be time for a change. I feel like people on welfare have it better than people with disabilities. If I were to receive donations in a substantial amount and somehow make it big in cryptocurrency I would try to fight for advocate rights and a change to the system not just for myself but for all disabled people hopefully across the world a lot of these rules and things were made 50 years ago due to the inflation of society and the rising cost of everything.
I think that it's time for a change, how can a disabled person live off $800 a month and only allowed to make up to $5,000 a year working that is only if you do the math less than 350$ a month you can receive working.
I am an average 30 year old male I should not be doomed to a life of mediocrity or being forced to live with someone simply to be able to split bills. I am self-sufficient and I deserve the chance to be that way after all this is disability we are talking about it's not like it's a choice anyone that's on it knows what I mean.
In no way was this article meant to upset anyone I'm just voicing my own opinion I wasn't trying to attack a specific audience I'm just voicing myself. thanks everyone.
