What Would You Do?

Deaf students will be featured on tomorrow night's What Would You Do? The ABC hidden camera program will show what happens when deaf people are discriminated against. RIT/NTID students will apply for a job at a coffee shop in New Jersey, but the person discriminating will be an actor pretending to be a manager to see how customers respond. The manager will say things like: “I think you people would rather work with people of your own kind" and “We don’t hire deaf people here.” Watch the show at 9pm Eastern. Read more about it here.
