This is sort of an opinion poll.
I’m currently trying to find work (in a new great depression and during a re-surging pandemic while my city currently has a heavily armed, vegan, internet rap singer warlord running the Capital Hill Autonomous Zone (wtf?! - you can’t make this stuff up) - but that’s another topic altogether). One of the questions on a job application was ‘do you have a disability’? I stared at that question for way too long. I mean, yep, I do, definitely. Does the government know that or agree? Nope. If I say yes, I’m sort of lying. If I say no, I’m also lying. I think I could get fired either way. I have no real disability protection and who hires a knowledge worker that spends four plus months a year not remembering their native tongue and who can’t accomplish simple tasks? How would you guys answer that question? And if I get the job am I obligated to tell them about MAV? Is it a dumb idea to wait until it’s obvious - either by MAV making itself known in public or just the regular need for time off?
I’m not sure I’ll even get an interview, but this is a problem that’s not going away until I either get work or qualify for disability (which would require me to apply and then fight for 2-3 years). What do you all think?
