Last week's DeafDigest briefly mentioned Wal-Mart hiring the deaf but not promoting them to better paying positions. A DeafDigest subscriber from a Midwestern state said that Wal-Mart never hires interpreters for deaf employees in staff and award meetings. And that for the past 10 years Wal-Mart hired five deaf people in one Midwestern store. All of them were fired because of minor violations.Is it possible that Wal-Mart hires the deaf and keeps them for one year before firing them to take advantage of tax incentives for hiring the deaf?
