I filled out an application to a major store today. It asked a lot of weird questions. One that bothered me was, “are you on public assistance?” I asked a friend why they would ask that question, since it has nothing to do with how well a person can perform at their job and was told the government (state?) gives tax credits to companies when they get someone off assistance by giving them a job.
So, since I’m independent and don’t take handouts, I’m at a disadvantage in the job market.
I’m NOT happy right now.
