Since no one is crass enough to ask this question, I will.

How many changes should a typical corporation be expected to make to
accomodate the disabled?

For example, if a tiny company with just a few employees has to add
everything required to comply with the disability act, and the cost is so
much that it impacts the company, is this fair?

For example, adding ramps that might never be used or changing the bathroom
for wheelchair access.

What about redesigning an entire production floor just to accomodate a few
who might not stay?
