    As I'm sure you'll see in my other post to you, artistry is not a moneymaking profession.

    If you are the boss of a restaurant, and you can either A) hire an able-bodied teenager to wash your dishes and clean your floors or B) hire a handicapped person who will need assistance doing the chores and may be unable to do them completely due to lack of mobility. Which do you choose?(Example: a paraplegic in a wheelchair couldn't reach the sink or fryer without a boost, and they have no way to sweep or mop efficiently)

    You're going to take A) every single time because it's best for your business.


    How many handicapped people do you know that work in professions like you have suggested? Do you think that they don't work due to laziness or lack of ability?

    If I'm an employer, I'm probably not going to hire someone who I have to help get to work if there are better options, which there always are

    And as an employer, you'd hire someone who takes forever crawling around and picking lettuce with their feet over an able-bodied fellow who can do three times the work in half the time?

    Unless there is a government incentive program to do so. Righties deplore government assistance, regulation and intervention ...unless and until they can derive a profit from it.
