I am not a racist by any means until I can not get a job unless I speak a foreign language at a commaon labor job.I mean I'm not going for Ambassador of Mexico here. Many places around here only will hire you if you speak Spanish, and No it isn't even the Spanish they teach in school. Shouldn't it be the other way around? If you want a job you have to speak English I mean is this AMERICA or am I confused? Panel Truss, Sadler's Barbeque, ect... Just walk in and hollar green cards please and watch the places empty. Then come right back when it's safe, any of the rest of us would be fired for running out on our job.

The companies you mentioned received tax breaks from HEDCO. Great to see our .5% sales tax being put to good use.

I think it is discrimination when you can't get a job in Henderson, Rusk County, Texas, United States of America because you do not speak Spanish. If all the businesses in this country quit catering to the Mexicans they would learn the language. Most of them do know English, they just don't want to use it. I think if all the people who apply for jobs and don't get them because they are not bilingual filed discrimination suits, this crapola would stop.

Sue the places that deny you a job because you don't speak Spanish. That is discrimination. English is the language of the United States.

The judge would laugh you out of the courtroom. Would be the same as me going to apply for a pilots job. One of the requirements is I would need to know how to fly. Apparently the requirements for these HEDCO financed jobs are that you be fluent in Spanish. Every job has a set of requirements that you must meet before being hired.

My husbands place of employment has a sign on the front and in the office that states....because of work conditions and duties ALL applicants MUST be able to read, write, and speak English. What a ball buster to the mexicans!

If the job was to teach spanish then I would agree that the applicant must speak spanish. Having a license to fly a plane is vastly different from sitting at a desk typing or working on an assembly line. The only reason a secretary or factory worker needs to speak spanish is to cater to mexicans who are either too lazy or too stupid to learn English.

All employers should be required to E-Verify their new hires. E-Verify checks ID through Home Security. Also checks to see if you have made any terroristic threat against anyone or anything. I know a company who does and roughly 40% of the mexicans are turned away because they are not who they say they are but the company can't call anyone and report it. If I walked in with someone else's ID and they did not know it I would be arrested on the spot.

Lazy white people!!! There are several places that would hire spanish \ english for a little over minimum wage, but for the hard work or labor they pay under wage and most MEXICANS would not complain at all. My husband works with lots of mexzicans and if asked to work late or weekends even sundays they will do it for th eir families.... most of american white people only work 40- hrs per week. If is cold or raining y'all rather stay home. Lots of mexicans are debt free because if they can't afford it or need it th ey pass on getting stuff on credit...see your life first then judge.. pray that God is not looking down at all off us and wonder "is this really what i created ?..karma

Really!!!! Load of caca but it did hit some nerves. You are probably one of the white americans that rather work under 40 hrs at 9.00 plus and off on weekends and evenings but you can't afford to get debt free... I want to see you do construction labor for 9.00 plus but 70+ hrs a week. And have a house paid for and cars paid for and be able to pay cash up front... lmao

Actually we have 3 houses paid for, 1 car, 1 truck, 1 tractor and land in the country: and, wondder of wonders, we didn't have to learn the mexican language to pay for them. Just so YOUR smart ass will know, I have cleaned houses and my husband has worked construction in order to pay for it. We never asked the government to give us one dime either. I would imagine you and all your mexican buddies and getting food stamps. You can't have much pride if you are asking for hand outs and I seriously doubt you could pay for a pizza with cash.

I waitressed and/or been in housekeeping since i was able to work and you are right Americans enjoy good food but that is where u would expect to here the language not when try to learn a job and can't because they put you with someone you can't understand and can't understand you. Being a waitress is not dangerouse working in the industry can be...

Being a single mom of 2, I have worked for whatever I can get for as many hours that will support my kids, so no I was not born with a silver spoon so keep your racial slurs to yourself. This is an English speaking country and everyone that chooses to live here just like any other country should learn the language. People have for hundreds of years and were proud to. What makes some Hispanics any better. My family came here in the 20's from Austria, and they were proud to be here. Some people are here by choice and need to be proud or get the hell out!
