"What's happening with Steak 'n Shake," a friend asked me recently. I figured it was time to blog about it once again.
First, I have to say that the Steak 'n Shake incident has turned my life crazy upsidedown. The latest to pick up the story was Diversity, Inc.:
Second Class Citizen: Deaf Mother of Three Denied Service At Restaurant.
Protecting Rights of People with Hearing Loss: What Does the Law Say?
A few days ago, my husband came home from work and told me that a co-worker heard the situation being discussed on the radio.
As it stands right now, I am still waiting to hear from Steak 'n Shake to see what their solution is to providing drive-thru access for people with disabilities. I want them to do more than just slap a sign on the speaker telling us that they'll serve us at the window. Their lawyer has stated that they are close to reaching a solution that they will present soon.
I have not filed a lawsuit-- I am working with the corporation to reach a solution that will ensure that every person with a disability who goes through a Steak 'n Shake drive-thru will do so with access.
