    Why doesn't a "Work/Employment" forum exist?

    I notice that a lot of subjects come up from periodically regarding issues in the workplace and was wondering why a work/employment forum doesn't exist. I am sure there are just as many people here who want to work as there are working, and are just unsure or as to what to expect within the workplace coming back with an SCI. Questions regarding employment issues usually appear in the "Life" forum and while work is a part of life, life certainly shouldn't evolve around work. Is there just not a desire or need for one? I'm just asking....

    Excellent idea, imo. Work/SSDI/SSI forum.

    That's not the impression I get.

    If I may be so inquisitive to ask, how are you employed?

    She's only mentioned it a bazillion times.

    Being born with a silver spoon in her mouth didn't hurt either.

    Anyways back to topic, I also like the idea of a work forum, but I would make it a work/education forum (& SSDI). Education is key for many people to get back into a job post sci, especially those who were craftsmen/tradesmen/skilled labor. I have a friend who's a steamfitter, who just incurred a c4-c6 injury, he won't be returning to any construction sites in his previous capacity any time soon

    Nope, but I can certainly comment on my observations of the most vocal members.

    Yeah really, why bother with a work forum, you know all us SCI losers are just a bunch of lazy ass good for nothings. I mean just look at us, just casually sitting there motionless, we're a bunch of real go-getters, eh? I know myself I'd prefer to be getting my $350 a month off of Social Security and buying dog food with my foodstamps, but I am just too lazy and shiftless to bother quitting my job, oh well.

    +1 on the werk forum. I'm sure I can suggest ways to dodge responsibility and maximizing the lack of work output, I'm real good at that. Uh oh, I think the boss is coming...time to grab the clipboard and look serious, makes me look real busy!
