I am a 45 year old out of work injured on the job Machinist with a family living well below the poverty line who have like most families have struggled to survive in these trying times. My wife is barely managing to maintain our living with off and on teaching work when available in our area. My multiple spinal injury makes me literally unhireable yet I'm refused disability based on the criteria that my singular injury which progressed to multiple ruptures and then added to with advanced spinal degeneration is to the state and federal boards does not qualify for their definition of a progressive injury. I paid into the system all my life, now like many I am denied the relief I paid for all my life.
