So I checked my email today and finally got a response to a follow up for a job I recently emailed for, and as usual, they said they found a 'candidate who was a better fit for the position.'
This is exactly why the employment situation where I live is complete and total bullshit. No matter how many jobs an employment specialist may say I'm qualified for, there's always ten more that are 'better qualified'. Once again, the miles thick glass floor rears its ugly head.
See, here's the thing: For all the help organizations like Voc Rehab claim they want to give all it seems to do is paint a target on our asses that makes it all the easier for employers to decide not to hire us. Doesn't matter how educated we are, how hard we work or whatever. If you have a disability and you don't have a driver's license, the only opportunities you'll ever have are shit wage jobs at McDonalds or Walmart, and I don't even have those due to my physical issues.
That's right. I have no hope left.
