There's a new restaurant in Canada with a twist. You don't have to speak to place your order. And many of the staff are deaf. The owners hope it will become a popular hangout place for everyone. "How many people in your party?" Just stepping in the front door, it's obvious this restaurant is something different. On your way to the table, the art on the walls provides a crash course in sign language. "I'm Gaitrie" Staff have been practicing, gearing up for the big opening. Gaitrie Persaud is nervous and excited. Before this, she worked as a hotel maid. "You find a job, but it's not the job you want, it's not what fits you," she says. "And this is something that fits my dreams and my goals. This is one of my dream's come true to be here." The manager knows sign language and can also hear. She learned to sign after meeting a deaf customer where she used to work. She admits, there have been challenges, especially when many of the servers have no experience. But she says it's worth it. "This is an amazing opportunity for the deaf community to be able to put themselves out into the workforce, in a workforce that would otherwise discriminate against them," says Rachel Shemuel, manager of Signs. Hearing customers can point to menu items. But each table also has a flip chart to teach signs. The owner can hear and sign. He hopes his business will be a first step to changing experiences for deaf people in the workplaces. "There'll be more job opportunities for the deaf in different industries, you know, they're able to show their potential, they're able to show how good they are, and I think they are very talented," says Signs Owner Anjan Mankumar. And, he says this restaurant is also about quality food. People in the area seem intrigued. "If they can work and they can do the job, why not?" says one man. "I would go once for sure," says one woman. "Challenges, yeah but I think that's what they're trying to do is overcome challenges,: says another man.
