And hey, it might do a disabled person some good to have a job, even if it's just a few hours a day, depending on how they're feeling/doctor's appointments/etc. But it should be the disabled person's choice AND you don't pay them pennies for their work; they should get a proper wage like everyone else. Though the people who employ them will probably do all this caterwauling how it's simply unfair to pay them a full wage and how they'll be unable to employ disabled people as a result, and Blah-Blah-Blah, but if you need to exploit an entire class of people just to get by, you're a shit company run by shitty people.

Though like I said, the sad part is that $7.80 is roughly the American minimum wage, so Americans are probably being exploited even more than the Aussies in the video.

For the record, I'm on the Autism Spectrum, so I am disabled as well.
