There should be a law passed that mandates ALL service industry employees in The U.S. should clearly speak, write and comprehend the English language in order to work in this country.

Yeah!, I think dog's should bark in English,
but cat's should meow in Serbo-Croatian.

People that serve the American population ie; Fast Food restaurants. When placing an order and the employee cannot even repeat it in plain english it irritates the hell out of me. 9 times out of 10 the order will be wrong as they do not comprehend what they are selling.

I agree. I've had the same problem.

I find it funny they manage to understand how to count money when you pay for the food. How convenient.

Perhaps if the 'service industry' paid a somewhat decent wage, english speaking people would apply for those positions. I don't know a whole lot of white people who speak english well that will work for minimum wage.

Honestly, just because some employees 'don't speak english' doesn't mean they aren't hard workers. Have any of you judgmental ass hats actually worked in the service industry? I have worked with some really hard working, loyal individuals who's first language isn't English, but they learn more everyday, and most of them try their asses off to be understood.

For the ones who don't, they are just plain lazy. Most people who act like they don't speak english are doing so because they are sick of being treated like shit by ignorant ass white people who don't know any spanish or whatever other language.

Maybe your stupid, fat, racist ass should stop eating at fast food restaurants that employ people who hardly speak english? There are plenty of places around that hire mostly white english speaking people. The food might be a bit more expensive, but if the english barrier bothers you so much, it should be a small price to pay. Maybe you could stay home and make yourself a fuckn salad once in a while? Or a pbnj? Or just stop eating so much all around...

Actually what's really going on is white people do want the jobs but they only hire illegals. I'm one of them.

Being hard workers has nothing to do with the fact they cant understand what you order nor can you understand them. Language is a barrier, case closed.

Microsoft is an example of a language issue. They've outsourced the call center to India. This means they cant speak English well nor understand it. This has made me pull my hair out more than once. I've called tech support and they cant understand me nor I them so I've ended up hanging up on them more than once. Its frustrating to put it mildly.

I'll never forget when I worked cleaning hotel rooms. Most of the workers were from Asia and didnt speak English. Problems kept popping up because of the language barrier. I more than once wanted to pull my hair out.

People should speak the language of the land they live in case closed. Doing otherwise only causes problems.

If I moved to a non-English speaking land I'd speak their language or just not move there. And I certainly wouldn't expect them to bow down to my lazy ass because I didnt feel like learning the language. That's simply ridiculous.

I'm in the food service industry, close to 4 decades experience, school, Mgt/Sup., Baker, Pastry Chef, with documentation from Germany......and I can't find a job ANYWHERE.

So I had to move to a lil' po-dunk Town and get a few Americans to pool their cash together and buy a place that ONLY hires Americans.

I honestly HATE mexicans, one did $37,000 damage to my left knee, and I lost My BSA streetbike to an illegal driver, and to top it off my Niece & Uncle were killed by a drunk mexican driver.

But then back in 2006 my oldest Brother was brutally murdered by 2 illegals, one a Honduran, the other a Guatemalan so I guess it's fair that I hate them too.

It's not being racist, "latino" was a word coined by the US Govt., that's all......they're just as white as the rest of Us, except for the mestizos.

The "Service industry" was once thriving with work, and USED to pay a living wage as well.
