I wish I knew what it was like to make more then minimum wage. All I get is low wage work. People wonder why I hate having Autism. Why I loath all the debt I got into in college. It never ends. All jobs I apply for unless its a low wage job with no other applicants. I never get the position. It matters not what the job is. Or people want me to work for free.

Its so bloody hard. If you are high functioning. Employers expect you to be ether an engineer or programmer. If you are not in the technical fields similar to those.

Not just me. See it all over the place. All a lot of us get regardless of our talents or skills are low wage labor jobs. Even if we have talents and skills and an education.
