Why do company's hire people who do not know English? Why do companies choose to put signs and advertisement in Spanish? we may be CLOSE to Mexico but by god this is still America.

We are having work done in our neighborhood by RJ Noble, California based, American owned. They are working on our streets.

They leave a note on our front door in SPANISH!!!! The note translates to:
There will be work done on your street from 7a-5p. Do not park on the street or your car will be towed.

WHAT?!! Why would work being done, contracted by the CITY (American Government) be left at our door in spanish. 99% of our neighborhood speaks English only!

I had to go on Google and use the translator to see what the note said

I know this isnt mexico but 95% of the people here are mexicans, thats why they advertise in spanish. Put yourself in the business mans shoes. If you put your signs in only english you lose out on customers. Thats why dumbfuck! And usa has NO official language. Proven fact

i see this as an assimilation of cultures and we must all embrace and welcome diversity into our homes.
