Hearing-impaired Waiters of Restaurant Catch Media's Attention

Editor: Tracy Zhu


A restaurant in Shenyang, capital of northeast China's Liaoning Province, catches the Chinese media's attention around the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, which falls annually on December 3: The restaurant currently employs 42 hearing-impaired and nonverbal persons as its waiters or waitresses, with many now describing it as the "restaurant with silent service.”


According to the local federation of disabled persons, the restaurant is now officially the working unit with the largest number of employed disabled persons in Shenyang.


The waiters or waitresses working in the restaurant are between 19 and 28 years of age.
