Teen with cerebral palsy says he was denied job interview: ‘We don’t hire people with disabilities’
CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A 19-year-old Virginia man with cerebral palsy claims a store manager denied him a job interview because of his disability. Since childhood, Chad Lowery has fought to prevent cerebral palsy from taking his independence. "I want to be independent as I possibly can," the Clover Hill High School graduate said. "I want people to know just because I have a disability doesn’t mean I can’t work."
