DeafDigest - 31 March 2021

DeafDigest Mid-Week edition - March 31, 2021 -- The Clubhouse and the Deaf Clubhouse is a new app, that DeafDigest previously mentioned as unfriendly to the deaf. Unfriendly for two reasons - no captions nor interpreters; and the Clubhouse policy that anything that is said inside the "room" cannot be revealed outside. This means no chat transcripts that could have benefitted the deaf. Not surprised if ADA attorneys are awaiting a wave of complaints from the deaf in the near future!   -- two reasons deaf people are not hired A businessman who hires many disabled and deaf people said: companies often don’t hire people with disabilities for what they perceive as liability reasons, or because they think it might make customers uncomfortable   -- the Undercover Boss and the deaf employee Bowlero Corp was featured on Undercover Boss TV program. It operates a chain of 300 bowling alleys in USA. Colie Edwin had a deaf employee that she was featured with on a segment of that TV program. She learned that he needed a hearing aid but couldn't afford it. She made him a promise - of a new hearing aid. Just hope it is a real promise, not a fake promise - because Undercover Boss is getting a bad reputation of making broken promises.     Deaf jobs - latest update 03/28/21 Blue and Gold editions & sub options at:
