The Deaf Decry Discrimination In Employment

Deaf News: Profoundly Deaf people and Hearing Impaired persons are often the last to be hired and the first to be fired.

New Vision share an article by Cecilia Okoth: "We are often the last to be hired and the first to be fired, potential employers consider our disability over our qualifications and ability to deliver on jobs." The Deaf are concerned that the job market is not fair to them a move they say has worsened their predicament.

However the labour market in Uganda presents multiple hurdles for the deaf and PWDs to overcome if they are to be absorbed in the job market.
