Sometimes the disability time thief steals a few moments here and there.

Sometimes the disability time thief regularly and repeatedly steals small amounts of time.

Sometimes the disability time thief steals all of your time.

This is the #DisbilityTax.

It’s not just disabilities.

Maybe in some worlds, everyone has the same 24 hours.

But that’s definitely not true in the world I live in.
