People with disabilities being treated as equal

Hi, My name is Ali,

I am currently on the KickStart employment program with Scope and I must say the way employers discriminate "Disabled people" is actually morally wrong. I been applying for jobs and passing interviews but as soon as they find out about my disability they decide to take the job off me. obviously, by using an excuse such as "Not showing a can-do attitude" which is BS when they didn't ask me to do anything! so now, I am writing a Screen-play that touches this issue.


Kind regards,

Ali

    Hi there Sam,

    Thank you so much for the information you provided me with, yeah I thought a screenplay would actually be a good thing to make as I believe the situation should be acted out and shown on screen via entertaining people
