Friday 5.5

This is an article on Jezebel about Starbucks being sued for firing a barista with dwarfism after she asked for a stool. The management at the store decided she would be posing a risk to herself and customers. As someone who will have to ask for a school wherever she works, this struck me. But Starbucks seems to be handling this more classily than most businesses, because they're now requiring (it seems) disability awareness training for management.
