I think there are two critical RL points that people might be missing
about this that would explain Amuro's situation a little better:
1. The Fed probably didn't want people to start deifying Amuro,
as the untrained, child hero of the 1YW. Though he did help out
alot in the beginning, the war was won by thousands of men and
women fighting in GMs and Salamis... the last thing they want is
for a myth of a child-psychic-warrior going out and undermining
morale in the Federation.
2. There are probably alot of Spacenicks and fanatic followers of
Zabi out there who probably want a piece of Amuro for 'revenge'.
He may simply be under house arrest for his own protection.
Besides, with the kind of recognition he has, it may simply be
impossible for him to get a job at "The Gap" at this point.
3. Amuro knows about the Gundam's learning computer, and his moves
are the basis for the programming in all Fed MS from that point
on. Do you really want this guy available for the enemy to capture
and take that kind of information from?
4. There are alot of unanswered questions about the Gundam and the
1YW that the Fed probably want to ask Amuro about. Furthermore, as
a civilian he can't be court-martialed by the Fed for dereliction
of duty, theft of government property, misuse of government
property, reckless endangerment, etc. But they'll be damned if
they'll let him _walk_away_ after all those stunts he pulled!
