Remember, this is the whole United States... not just your area.Wow, 90% is almost like every deaf person doesn't work only 10% works. I don't buy that either. I'm deaf and employed. Alot of my friends are employed too. Of course, there will be some that canNOT work for reasons. I just don't buy it.. 90%... *thinking* no way.
Seems to be it might be one of those made-up statistics.
Of the six deaf people I know personally, four work 40-hour weeks for paychecks, one is a homemaker married to a working hearie, and one is retired from Well Fargo Bank.
Technically, that small sampling shows 66.6% employed, closer to Authentic's number, but that figure is skewed on the downside, because the deaf wife is working at home without welfare, and the other deafie is retired, drawing well-deserved pensions, loafing, and spoiling her grandkids as God intended.
I was think maybe the researcher is pretty lazy by sent 10 to deaf and one of them is employed.There's 90% of deaf people being un-employed? Hmm, I wonder where did they get the information mainly on deaf people being unemployed by a staggering percentage? I'd be interested to see where they were able to find the statistics based on that result.
Sure, There are some deaf people who are un-employed, working under the table and there are some who actually holds a job. I don't think believe the high percentage is at 90%. It seems a bit high even for the deaf people. If it was around maybe 60 or so, then yeah it'd make sense.
hmm... maybe someone look up on how many deaf are on SSI and decide to label them as unemployed and make figure with amount of deaf in nationwide. Who know?Well those are employed, not unemployment which a person who don't work at all, example is me except that I am actually landlord and tendly not really like to admit that I was a landlord..
I was in El Paso, TX once. I have person who know ASL excellent and work in DARS. He show knowledge that too many deaf in that city have no jobs.Remember, this is the whole United States... not just your area.
If you have 100 deaf friends and 95 of them are working, that's 95 out of the whole United States.
In your area, those deaf people probably had a better chance of finding jobs. In other states, they might have had a harder time finding jobs.
True, many Americans don't have passports for different reasons... Aviod to pay child support is the one of different reasons.I agree, I thought too, maybe 70%... but i heard that American People people don't have a passport, about 90%. I can't imagine....
