A lot of scientist jobs require a PhD. I was in the PhD program at Davis, but I had to leave early with a Master’s because of my mental illness. So really, beside just earning potential going to shit, my hope for employment period is like, way less, just because of coincidentally I had a mental illness.
So don’t believe them when they say they don’t discriminate. This is what social injustice is all about. You can’t get the requirements for the job because of your condition where otherwise you could, and therefore it’s discrimination (against the mentally ill).
I’d be surprised how bad it is for other minorities if I read about it. I’m sure of it.
