...No wonder deaf people often have difficulty getting hired. I just finished watching the segment on the ABC "What Would You Do?" show about deaf discrimination. The most upsetting part is not the actor manager's discrimination, it is the fact that three human resources professionals "advise" the manager on how to subtly discriminate against deaf job applicants. They are essentially saying it is okay to discriminate against deaf job applicants, just hide it. The problem with hidden or subtle discrimination is that it is hard to prove.
