I am no longer an employee of this company. Throughout my employment at this company, I witnessed a severely disabled colleague endure constant harassment & persecution. As a (religious) minority, his medical impairments were not considered as legitimate by the company. For a multicultural work place, the treatment of a historically persecuted minority, with numerous clear documented disabilities, should be far better than he endured. If you have had any doubts about leaving this company, and you fall in to any of these categories, leave. The only shortage of work here is evidently within the HR department. If HR dedicated this much time to treating employees correctly, rather than covering their own self image, I'm sure overall company morale would be better. The numerous posts here regarding similar treatment are of no coincidence.

It is attitudes and beliefs, like this, as to why there are divisions within the company, and there will never be maximum potential achieved as long as this type of animosity is there. I suppose you look down on the janitors, too? Your demeanor is exactly the same type of person that the OP is mentioning in their original post. Uneducated, Upstate NY locals, low information? You are absolutely disgusting as a human being.
I've seen this during my time at Global, as well. There is a subset of employees at the fab that are uneducated and low information. Particularly in the upstate NY region. PT's, Facility, Gowning and Cleaning people tend to be low paid and locals. Then mix in your multi-national engineers, admin and executive staff and you have 2 different worlds existing. I've seen people walking around in Trump hats, camo and Thin blue line t-shirts. They are an eyesore..... thankfully they are in the minority only employees
Call the ethics line
I've seen the opposite, where health services, HR, facilities etc went above and beyond to support someone with a disability. This person was allowed to WFH for years before COVID. Flexible hours before it was policy. Even before that they had their desk and work area made more accessible.
Justice needs to be served. This just breaks my heart as someone who has a disability themselves. So disgusting!
I hope somebody will go and post it on LinkedIn where they recently posted a video of a disabled person describing how happy he was.
