    Sedona Discriminates against those with Disabilities

    After working at the Red Rock Yogurt Cafe in Sedona, AZ for two days, I was forced to quit due to me having Tourettes Syndrome and being hard of hearing. (almost deaf but not quite) I was treated with so much disrespect and like I didn't matter in the world because of my disability that I couldn't stand it. I noticed though I wasn't the only one. Anyone that walked into the store that had a disorder; being down syndrome, autism, deaf etc. was refused service by my co-workers. And if they did get service, they got treated with disrespect, and were giving attitude for being in the store. I just want the world to know that I feel refusing service to customers because they were born with something they can't control isn't right. And I'm pretty damn sure treating an employee like crap because they have a disability is illegal. I want to get it out there that my now former job discriminates against those who have disabilities, and feel the need to not only refuse service to customers because of it, but treat them with the most horrific disrespect along with their employees. For something that said person has no control over. And I feel something seriously needs to be done. Because this kind of behavior is unacceptable.
