January 29, 2008, the House Committee on Education and Labor held a full committee hearing on H.R. 3195, the ADA Restoration Act of 2007. Among the witnesses was Carey McClure, an electrician with 20 years experience who was denied a job with General Motors because of his disability and then was denied protection of the ADA by the courts because he wasn’t disabled.
Mr. McClure’s testimony is available in a video summary on You Tube, provided by the Democrats of the Education and Labor Committee and provides a powerful statement about the need for ADA restoration.
(Note: The video is not captioned, however a transcript is available in the comments.)
