Losing Yet Another Employment Specialist
I'm getting real sick of this shit. I get that the guy had to quit for medical reason so I'm not pissed at him. It's the system that pisses me off.
Between the lies of supported employment, SNAP benefits being held hostage unless you put in hundreds of applications a year unless Voc Rehab intervenes, the impossibility of navigating Social Security and of course, the 15 years I've spent working with Voc Rehab itself, I'm fuckin' over it.
The thing about supported employment that nobody ever talks about is the fact that, after it ends, the employer gets rid of you. After all, they don't want to pay the wages that Voc Rehab was covering during said supported employment. And even if you do manage to stay on after the support period, management does all it can to make your life a living hell.
See ya around,
