The Social Security Administration, which is charged with administering the largest disability program in the country, just settled a class-action lawsuit. The allegations of said lawsuit? That SSA discriminated against their own disabled employees. According to the plaintiffs and their lawyers, SSA systematically denied promotions to workers with disabilities. It really makes you wonder how we can trust an agency that did this sort of thing to impartially judge the claims of applicants. It makes a bit more sense now that SSA denies to many people their disability benefits. Now we see what their attitude is towards the disabled, even among their own ranks. Let's hope SSA has learned to treat both their own people and disability applicants with a lot more consideration.
