    whats wrong with speaking more than 2 languages? last time I checked that was considered smart.

    So to be clear, you'd rather work for the company that chooses to ignore a large portion of the potential customer base because none of the techs speak spanish? Yeah, that'll work out well. Personally, I'd rather work for a company that doesn't turn away paying jobs.

    MOST companies are moving towards the point of paying a bilingual premium (this isn't just HVAC businesses). This also happens in nearly every other country in the world... only there, they pay more for people who have the audacity to speak english.

    I can attest to that. My mother works for a company that manufactures heart monitors and the like. She speaks English and German ad she learned Italian because a lot of her clients are in Italy.
    Every customer you take for granted today will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Thats beyond the missing point of your post! somehow you feel entitled to rule and dictate what type of qualifications an employer is allowed to ask jobs applicants, who do you think you are?

    well, rather than debating about it. you tell working class and affluence class anglo saxons and other whities to have more than 1.2 kids to counter act the decline in white populationl. if you stop having kids then obviously your race is gonna extinct.

    or you could learn how to habla espanol or other language and collect the money from the wealthy immigrant that works as hard as you do. the Home depot type may not have the moolah in the 1st couple of years.

    propaganda? what are you taking about?
    according to your pointless post, you feel the sky is falling cause some company somewhere is looking for a bilingual hvac tech, you are not bilingual,are not interested in the position but are unhappy about a private company asking for such qualification, I dont get it!
    There are far worst things affecting our trade in a negative way like big corporations swallowing the small fish and undercutting everyone and their mothers.

    if your responsable you only have kids you can afford to take care of other wise you just pop out babbies left and right and the state pays for them and yes the responsable population declines

    but that is NOT what your OP was about. You were whining about an HVAC company choosing to expand their business to those who HAVEN'T learned that language yet. You call it 'catering' to them... successful businesses would call that customer service.

    If you want to get upset about government forms and such in a foreign language, that's one thing. but THIS is nowhere near the same thing. Foreign language skills have been considered a job qualification for centuries (it's the reason foreign languages are taught in schools - it's not just so you can go on vacation and find the bathroom).

    Where I work (yes, in America) we have foreign language speakers in 15 different languages - they all get paid a premium above their normal pay because of this ability - and we are not being overrun by tagalog speakers... but there are some, and we choose to serve them.
