The Federal Aviation Administration is actively recruiting workers who suffer “severe intellectual” disabilities, psychiatric problems and other mental and physical conditions under a diversity and inclusion hiring initiative spelled out on the agency’s website.

“Targeted disabilities are those disabilities that the Federal government, as a matter of policy, has identified for special emphasis in recruitment and hiring,” the FAA’s website states. “They include hearing, vision, missing extremities, partial paralysis, complete paralysis, epilepsy, severe intellectual disability, psychiatric disability and dwarfism.”

“Do you want to fly in an airplane where they prioritized DEI hiring over your safety?,” tech billionaire Elon Musk wrote on X last week. “That is actually happening.”

I say, flying could become a lot more fun in the future.

So what's new Luke? We've been flying by the seat of our pants for years .Expect a crash landing any day soon due to the " severe intellectual" disabilities of some rulers of this World.sigh
I'd imagine they would give jobs to a disabled person that is within their capability only, something that should be obvious to most people.
Hi Snow,

I spent years in the Social Services working with people who had learning disabilities and in those days they were just ignored except for attendance at Day Centres.

At last they are being recognised and a myriad of jobs are being made available to them.It warms my heart to see many who have taken up acting and even modelling and making a name for themselves.It'a about being recognised and accepted into society.

Albert Einstein had an intellectual disability and look what he achieved.Stephen Hawking springs to mind also.

Stop being so pessimistic, smile.
Damn sure they are. rolling on the floor laughing
Just made me think. There are a few of us that have never really lived life to the extremes and back. Those are the types that are oblivious to how easy 'errors' come crawling in. Doesn't matter what or who one is, life has a tendency to dish up some amazing times.rolling on the floor laughing

Some might call it a 'recipe for disaster 'laugh
Once you have a foot in the door, who knows what can happen over time?

Haha if you think it's bad now you just wait a few years.
I hear when passengers are boarding they must produce a 'certificate functionality' of the now compulsory parachute which will be part and parcel to the purchased ticket.
Survival of the fittest.rolling on the floor laughing
