    Every deaf person should make a copy of this article and attach this to their resume whenever applying for a job (except fro working with deaf people) so these idiot employers can stop with the discrimination nonsense!

    This is great! I wish more companies would take advantage of the talents that so called "disabled" people have and incorporate them within their business. Being deaf is not a disability in my mind, it is an attribute that makes one unique from others. Other than the way a deaf person communicates, the hearing world is the exact same as the deaf world. So why it is considered a disability is beyond my knowledge. I didn't know a company like this existed. How do the deaf contribute to the workplace? What do you value in them? How do you all communicate on a day to day basis?

    This is great! I wish more companies would take advantage of the attributes that deaf individuals have. Personally, I do not consider being deaf a "disability." I consider it to be an attribute that makes that individual unique. Besides the differences between the way deaf and hearing individuals communicate, our worlds are quite similar in every other aspect; if not the exact same. What do you value about deaf employees? What are top values within the company and the employee base as a whole? How does everyone communicate most often? Video phone, e-mail, web chat?
