I am disabled. For this reason, I've been unemployed for the last 24 years. I have an intense desire to be a productive member of society. I have an insatiable drive to work, my disability is under pretty good control and I'm reasonably well educated. I posses a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree from Auburn University with a major in Transportation and a minor in Management. I have also completed a considerable amount of work towards a Master of Science degree. I have worked in dispatch, sales and operations in the motor carrier industry My last job was with the U.S. Postal Service sorting mail. The crews I worked with received recognition on several occasions for the amount of mail we sorted during a shift. The job held before that was as a driver helper with United Parcel Service. The driver I worked with and I made around 168 stops in one day if memory serves me correctly. I worked hard at all of these jobs. I attempted to do the work of two. I realized I should have paced myself, working to achieve higher productivity over a period of time. I am here asking if you may know of someone with an open heart and mind who is willing to give me an opportunity to reenter the workforce.
Do you help with cases across the Country?
Legal public ex*****on by guillotine of a ceo at Gilead and a few politicians would make medicine affordable for everyone and not just the very rich.
