Dumb Excuses

“This girl is the best candidate for the job.”

“But did you see her hearing aid?”

“So what? She was able to hear us just fine.”

“May be. But you know how it is…the cost of adjustments, dependence, medical bills, and so on…and bad publicity if you let them go later… Let’s avoid the mess!”

  1. Did you know that ‘Disabled’ people (I hate to use that term) are usualy the last to be chosen and first to be laid off?

    Did you know? They have already adjusted to their ‘disability’, so there is no dependence. Also adjustments are pretty cheap. According to researchers, people with disability have a longer ‘shelf-life’ because once settled, they don’t jump jobs easily. They work harder and are more stable. In other words, model employees!

    Hire them more often.
