Hello, fellow AD members! There's something I've been curious about for a couple of years. What do deaf people do for a living? Or how would deaf people make money through a hobby or part time job?

Myself, for example... I work part time at Pizza Hut. Even though that's the majority of my income, I also have a small hobby which involves buying and selling on eBay.

That's me. I'm curious to know what other deaf members do, if you feel like sharing.

I worked as an intern for a local newspaper, then I worked for Taco Johns, then I worked for Wayne Farms, LLC which is the 4th largest poultry processor in the US behind Purdue, Tyson, and Butterball. Then I worked as a janitor / carpet cleaner for a custodial service, and now I currently work for Petit Jean Poultry, which is subcontracted to Tyson, as of May 2007, but now the company will close its doors permanently on January 31st permanently. I am considering to go to ConAgra and work their full-time until I complete my degree in which I hope to become a teacher.

Right now, I'm more like stay at home mommy of my daughter Alexanderia during on SS- almost like SSI but it's for a single mother who left a job, I was working at the group home of three houses to helping people who are deaf and blind for more than one and half years which I earn very good income but too bad that I left that job for my family, their support and my daughter. Hope will find a job if I can in Michigan.
