    I think the reason that many people are applying for disability is because until lately, they have been working despite their condition. With 2.5 bodies per job opening, it is obvious that many job kreators do not want to hire the disabled. They also don't seem to keen on hiring anyone over 50. So what would you have them do?

      even if they are healthy. If you have a chronic condition that causes you to miss work, or have frequent doctor appointments during office hours, they won't put up with you.
