    What a bunch of baloney.

    The website for the job poster is in ENGLISH ONLY and sells high end services to what I would image are non 1st gen citizens.

    They need someone to relay english spoken orders from the office to the min wage illegals/barely legals. That's it...defend the lack of opportunity for the kid next door, or break his heart by telling him his competition will work for the minimum or less.

    welllll usa and canada is happen to be the land of immigrants. so naturally there will be other language spoken. it happens that english are one of the first to come over and the more dominant one. so why not have crew that caters to those immigrants. even if their 1st gen is not succesful, they may have grandchildren, and other families that's very wealthy. it happens all the time. if there's a service tech that speak my mother tounge, he will get the 1st try. if he's an idiot, then naturally he won't get it again.

    if the dutch won at the war in manhattan or if the french haven't sold you a bunch of land on lousiana purhcase or if the russian didn't sold you alaska and you haven't took some from mexico, there could be at least maybe 5 different nation in the geographical area that is USA. so relax and learn another language. it's not degrading, it's enriching. about time you guys learn another language. other ppl need to learn english as second language to work with you, maybe you need a second language to work with other ppl.

    Watching the Olympics it always amazes me just how many of the young people from all over the world speak English. Maybe they pick it up from Rap "music".

    I love getting around techs that believe anyone but English speaking Americans are terrible people. That's when I start speaking Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. When they freak out that I can speak three languages, I let them know that I'm preparing so I can have a secure job when China takes over. HAHAHAHA! Another thing... just because someone's first language may be Spanish doesn't mean that they can't speak English. Perhaps your customer can better express themselves in their mother tongue and the more tools you have, the better. I have Chinese customers that are here legally, that can speak English, but they always request me because they can use Chinese to describe issues and chat it up. Why is America falling behind economically? It's not just the language barrier, but we're one of the few countries that don't teach multiple languages from childhood.

    Sorry, but I disagree. If you move to a country, you learn the language not force the country to learn yours. Speak multiple, great! But don't tell me I have to learn another to appease somebody that moved here.

    I think we misunderstood here. I agree with you, that if you moved to a country you should be able to speak the national language. well, if the immigrant population that speak the same language is large, whether you want it or not they're the defacto 2nd language.

    y do u think lowes and homedepot is bilingual? it's a defacto 2nd language that most trades man need to be able to speak, whether you like it or not. we got trilingual stuff since our official language is english and french.

    in the west coast it's prolly mandarin or japanese or hindi.
