When you spill the beans about being hurt, any kind of hurt, employers look at you as a health risk. Hit the pavement. Also search job employment agencies. With your qualification you shouldn't have a problem. You can also call companies to find out if they are taking applications or by who they are accepting, job search employment. Check it out. Oh and you should always carry a doctors approval slip that you are ok and they can copy.

This is exactly why anyone injured on the job should report it immediately. As soon as you walk out the door, you create doubt as to whether or not your injury was job related or happened off the job. You could file for Worker’s Comp., but I guarantee you they will fight it. Your hernia will also limit the types of jobs for which you will be considered. Reporting injuries as soon as they occur is essential for your protection.

This sounds like wrongful termination and a workman's comp claim. I have no grounds to make the suggestion, but you may need to contact your local employment organization for your state and also a lawyer.

Go to unemployment. They may have terminated you in the wrong way. Then There are places all over hiring. Go to a job employment office, theis place will find you a job and pay you and then bill the factory. With your trade you can work anywhere. Good Luck. Make sure you put down your hernia, next time you inform new employers ok. I would also get a written Doctors statement on your hernia. Cover your own bases, don't give any employer a chance to get rid of you again.

If still able to lift 70 lbs, can try UPS, they hired me in 3 days time. Package handler is about 16-25 hrs per week. Here they pay just under $20 per hour.
