— reading skills important in restaurant kitchens

Deaf people face discrimination when they want to
work in restaurant kitchens. A restaurant boss said:

Many restaurants don’t hire the deaf and I don’t
understand why. As long as kitchen cooks can
read the notes, they can work. Doesn’t matter if
they are deaf or hearing?

— four railroad derailments in two months

A railyard yard manager, not deaf, complained that
that his railroad company had four derailed
trains in two months. It was not on the
railroad tracks, but in the railroad repair
yard. Asked if these hearing employees follow
procedures to get trains moved from one track
to another track, the manager said:

they have eyes and they just don’t see!


Deaf people have eyes and they see because
they cannot hear. Hearing people have
ears and they often don’t use it.


— Mercedes Benz and the deaf

Mercedes Benz is one of the best automobiles
in the world. Their mechanics are so important
that this automaker hires full time recruiters
to look for skilled mechanics everywhere.

cars? There was a story of four deaf
mechanics working on a Mercedes Benz
Sprinter Van. They work together, using
hand signals and gestures because they
cannot shout out instructions!
