We've been looking into the Americans with Disabilities Act as it applies to bakeries.
Good thing most buildings are already compliant. The back areas where the bakers will be producing floury goodness doesn't have to be compliant, only the customer areas, and that's already covered at most of the places we've been looking at.
Baking is not for wusses or people with less than full use of their physical attributes.
And no, that doesn't mean you have to be pretty to be a baker. The Coffee Monkeys have to be good looking. Or at least not hideous. But as long as the bakers are strong and clean (and wear hairnets), they could look like orangutangs.
Hey, if they were orangutangs, they'd certainly have the strength needed to pound all that dough and shape it and lift it and move it.
Actually, we'll excercise our right to be discriminatory and hire humans, not orangutangs.
