By JONATHAN STAPLETONA The American conservative website The American Interest is reporting that the company that owns Django CMS has decided to no longer hire people with disabilities.
The company has confirmed that it will no longer employ people with Disabilities in the Django CMS.
It said in a statement: The Django CMS is an inclusive CMS for developers with disabilities that we are proud of.
However, we have recently decided to take a different approach to this issue, and we will no more hire developers with Disabilitities in Django CMS in the near future.
While we understand that some developers with the condition of disability are more than willing to work with us, we cannot continue to accommodate developers who are not.
Django CMS’ parent company, DreamHost, has been working on the site for several years.
This is not the first time that Django CMS’ decision has drawn attention.
Last year, Dreamhost’s parent company announced that they were discontinuing the use of Disabilites in the project.
That announcement was met with widespread criticism, with many calling it a blow to the disability community.
In addition to Django CMS, Dream Host also has other products, including WordPress and Drupal.
What do you think of DreamHost’s decision?
