I started my career at Nordstrom in the early 1980’s in the Sales Audit department in Seattle. At that time the height of technology was AM/FM radios with a band for listening to TV. Most of the Auditors had one and listened to their soap operas using ear buds while working. At Christmas time Mr. Bruce came thru the office to shake hands and wish everyone a happy holiday. On the way out he turned to our manager and said “I think it’s great that you hire so many deaf people.”
