If i apply for a job should i tell them up front i have a disability? If i do i might get passed over. but if i don't then as usual i get passed over because of my poor work reference. i have been searching for a part time job since 2003 and look for a month or 2 then give up then the next season when i'm up to it look for another month or 2 then give up/ the same routine till the present. I think i don't get jobs even though i had 2 interviews all the time, is i don't have a good work record and no one to mediate for me about my disablility. i see lots of disabled people around town working but they have services that can help them find a job and tend to their daily life. i'm on the waiting list for 2yrs for services for disabled people, but there's no funding for me at the moment. i'm about 50 back on the list. only moved 3 numbers in a yrs time. I think it makes a difference for one to go on his own to get a job and having a staff member mediating for a person to get one.
