4 more handfuls

“I think people with disabilities should ask for more money.

Other people are asking
and now they are getting it.

We only have a little
and they are getting 4 more handfuls.

We are getting one finger
like we are small
and being ignored.”

According to a recent Angus Reid survey, two-in-five Canadians living with disability (40%) indicate they are worried about money often or all the time — this is almost double the figure among Canadians with no disability (23%).
