Firstly Maria Miller can kiss my exterior.....she can put that on her expenses sheet!
We live in a society today where people are out numbering jobs and employers are a lot more choosy, , no matter what miller said. there are many employers who are aware of the advantages employing disabled people can give, Many are finding it very hard to find regular employment, but this is down to many different reasons. I broke my back earlier this year and have now lost the only job i have ever known, i am able to walk and luckily financially I am not dependent on the state, but I fully understand the difficulties many people are facing, disabled or not.
I'm really sorry about your back injury because I can imagine it being like the seven circles of hell.
You've got a loving husband and best of all you can recuperate through this forum.
It must be grafitying that he can support the both of you through his job.
However me and my sisters situation is more unstable what with her being employed by the council.
So I need all the help I can get off the state while I'm in between jobs.
She's thinking of applying for voluntary redundancy because these recent cuts are crippling us.
I reckon she will be headhunted for a better job because of her impressive list of GVQ's.
However I'm thinking of scrapping my Jobseekers once I see the vacancies put up for the job.
Btw I'm glad I've found some common ground with somebody else on the subject of disability here.
