For years now, ever since the multi-culti thing started, I have run into ads for jobs that require one to be able to understand and speak spanish. This has been for jobs in the government sector as well as private employers. It has always seemed odd to me that one should be required to speak a foreign language to work in America.
With this action by the government now I am even more confused. Is it okay to force an American to learn a foreign language to get a job in America but not to force a foreign language speaker to learn English? Yeah, I know, the world isn't fair. Still ticks me off.
