ADA is suppose to protect the civil rights of the disabled, INCLUDING protecting the disabled from pay and job discrimination, but I found out on at least two occasions that the ADA of 1990 is a load of sh*t and nothing more.
The first time occurred back in December,1992, after having the pleasure of being told by my US Congressman, the Dishonorable Herb Bateman of Virginia, "The disabled have no rights to live much less deserve equal protection under the law" all because I had the nerve to question a discriminatory that dates back to 1938 that grants employers the right to pay the disabled employees below minimum wage.
The second time occurred 12 years later, in November, 2004, and after breaking my left elbow at work 6 months earlier, I had the pleasure of being not only called "An extremely simple man" by the Communist-Wealth of Virginia but I also having the pleasure of being told by this ever-so-wonderful state "You need to stick to jobs that you know how to do because he lacks the mentality to do much of anything else". This means cleaning up after the "normal people of society" all because of my speech impairment, despite having 5 years computer experience with a prior job, and was working at Siemens as a machinist at the time, since September at that, where apparently they thought that I could do more than "Scrub some sh*tty, nasty *ss toilet for a living."
These two incidents that happened to me not only goes totally against what the ADA is suppose to protect but it also proves just how hypocritical the government really is. This is just my thoughts about the ADA and this why I think "The ADA of 1990 is a load of sh*t and nothing more."
