FOREVER Respected As The Head Of The House!

We are survivors, we fight sickness, we heal after being wounded, we adapt, and we continue to provide for our loved ones. Browsing through cashier positions in the state of Rhode Island, I seemed to land on jobs that paid $7.50-$8.00hourly, nothing more, nothing less. Discouraging to say the least, adding the fact that most cashier jobs entail standing for a long period of time, and mobility was crucial. But then one day I came across “Aldi’s Food Mart “ The man who rang me up was sitting down at his register, to my surprise he wasn’t wheelchair bound but his position undoubtedly was suitable for someone who is wheelchair bound. As I left I noticed a sign saying “Hiring Cashiers $11.25 hourly.” What are the odds, one of the only perfect positions available is also the highest paying position I’ve seen. It’s hard to feel discouraged when you re-order your priorities, or have responsibilities as the head of the house. As a provider, life in a wheelchair isn’t at all what you would imagine. Imagine this!Here is a short list of jobs for wheelchair bound people:

  • Line Cooking 
  • Painting 
  • Structural engineering
  • Accounting 
  • File organizing 
  • Human resources management 
  • Cashiering 
  • Creative writing 
  • Animator
  • Video editor
  • (Write out an idea here and continue the list, if you can :) )

The list is endless; normally the head of management within any organization is sitting down 60% of the time. In a way being wheel chair bound just put you in a position for a higher ranking position, so let the job market encourage you! Long before it wears you down!
