Equal Pay For Disability.

Bold, white capital letters reading Equal Pay For Disability on a purple square. A black & white I.age of several empty wheelchairs surrounds the box in the background.

A Tory candidate has stated that disabled people should be paid less than our able-bodied counterparts, because our work is about happiness.
Because we don’t have bills to pay.
Because someone else will look after us.
Because we don’t pay more for transport, accessible accommodation, equipment, or medication.
Because able-bodied employers are giving us opportunities we should be grateful to receive.
My work saves lives.
It could save the NHS that they destroyed.
It takes skill, hard work, & dedication.
But because I use a wheelchair I should be paid less for it.
This story has already fallen off of the news websites. It’s already being covered up & forgotten. We cannot let that happen so close to a general election.
So if you support disability rights, even if you’re not in the UK, tell people about this. Tell them the truth.
That a vote for the Tories is a vote for blatant illegal ableism.
