L' Chaim vlogsite make impossible for leaving the text comments which discriminate against non-vloggers and deaf people without any videocams. L ' Chaim, deaf vlogger, ought to include both video and text replies to her vlog postings.
In response to L'Chaim's "Facebook/My Space" and present background checks among prospective employers for hiring new employee in general.
Unforunately, many employers do the cheaper background checks of any job applicants like
checking their finanical history, ex. unpaid debts to see if this applicant is a responsible person or not.
Deaf blogger, Rob Underhill - "Under the Hill" did report on the state of Ohio legislature consider the legislative bill to forbade any employers from disqualifying any job applicants based on their finanical history or credit ratings last month ago. Underhill's deaf blog could be found on the Deaf Village.
More and more employers check out any potential employees' Facebook and My Space to find out what kind of social networkings this job applicant have.
Or the prospective employers rather not hire any job applicants whose are more likely to spend hir time on Twitters, My Space and Facebook during the employment hours.
Or employers fear of any job applicant whose resort to the use of blog or some kind of online communication to smear the place of employment or compromise the security system of their workplace.
That's why many deaf job applicants ought not to enclose their membership with deaf organizations which clearly identify them being deaf on their employment resumes.
I also had a difficult time for prospective employers to hire me based on the merits of my expertise and capability to do the given job definition. I had a bad blotter on my credit history
which I disputed on past student loans. I already paid off the student loan in lump sum, but the lender seen differently.
Many deaf people think that I am some kind of lazy bones for not having the decent employment. Those people do not fully know what happened with "behind the scene" of employers' unfair background checks. That is part of nowaday trend for employers to do
the cheaper background checks without hiring the real investigator or company.
I was occassionally hired by several hearing individuals thru networkings. That was only the
way to obtain the gainful employment.
How sad of the present system unfairly deny anyone for obtaining the employment based on their credit history or social networkings without knowing the real "you" or "me".
The "Buckeye State" (Ohio) legislature is currently attempting to right the wrongful and deceptive practice of employers in general, resort to inferior kind of background checks like credit history or online profiles, ex. Facebook and MySpace. That is kind of modern "blacklisting" in similar to the parnonia scare of Communist membership in the 1920s and 1950s
without knowing what is really going on with this particular individual.
Ever the New York City government used to check out any teachers being associated with the Communist membership and dismissed them instantly back in the 1950s and 1960s and 1970s.
Dr. Yerker Anderson, former sociology professor at Gallaudet College/University. Anderson was unfairly turned down for the government job because he just visited the USSR (Soviet) embassy in Washington, DC out of his usual curiousity to visit various embassies around the world. Dr. Anderson couldn't understand why he was not hired at all. Anderson somewhat found out that he was seen visiting the old USSR embassy in Washington, DC. Jesus Christ!
Many good and hardworking people often lose the true employment opporunity to such unlogical and pointless method of background checks. That explains why many deaf people end up on the welfare.
I recalled that some deaf people strongly objected to the idea of Ricky Taylor aka Ridor being employed within the VRS industry. Ridor mentioned in his blog that he will work for particular VRS company. The Ridor haters did check out whether Ridor was really employed with the VRS company. That deaf Ridor hater found out that Ridor was not employed with that company.
I asked this deaf Ridor hater why he had to do overboard with the background check on Ridor. That deaf individual replied that he had to protect the confidentiality of VRS clients via calls. I was totally shocked about some deaf people would do anything to sabotage other deaf people's chances to be employed.
I also suspected that some deaf people purposefully discredited me within the federal agency concerned my past student loan. I found out that particular deaf individual worked in the same department of that federal agency.
No questions about paying real heavy price for being a deaf blogger and vlogger!
