Seems to me yu guys were money hungry we are in American and if the hospital goes bankrupt alot a people will lose there jobs they might even start cutting people real smart selfish people so if we worked in the Philippines we are required to speak ur language or can we sue cause we speak English Mexicans are educated hard working we are here to work not sue its the same thing like living of the government and ur not getting that much money after splitting it and taxes it's like ur bragging and your proud yu put other people's jobs in jeopardy nothing good will come of that money that's bad money if yu don't like the rules and your so educated why don't yu work in your country I'm just saying so God be with you and enjoy your money cause God don't like ugly my prayers are with the delano hospital all the people who work hard delano community cause they will be the ones will have to pay the price for your happiness

That only shows that Filipino nurses did it for money not for people. If anything, they should be thankful they had a job in that hospital (including great benefits ) there are people who are literally begging to have a job there to provide great patient care. and those a holes ruined it for them! Basically all the patients in Delano are Hispanics it's rude to use foreign language around them it just makes patients feel bad. Keep all that dirty money! And your shittty patient care.

Really people! You all complain of us speaking our language, yet we still know English. Whereas, a lot of Mexicans can't even speak English. I work at a fast food joint and I get criticized because I don't speak or understand Spanish, and I'm constantly asked how come I don't understand your language when a lot of "my people" do. So don't sit there and poke fun of; how you say "chicken language" when you all do the same.

I don't judge anyone or say anyone's better than anyone else but if ur going to boast and brag about money they didn't earn and call another race lazy or haters Chavez fought for both Mexican and Filipinos for equality but suing the hospital for money was wrong there are other ways to make a statement Chavez fasted he never sued now I could honor that there's no honor in what yu did gread now ur true to ur country show them how American yu became

You all need to stop complaining if you dont like our patient care. No one has told you to stay home and collect welfare and have babies you cannot support. We have made the choice to better ourseleves. What have you dont for yourself other than stay home and complain. Get your butt out of your home and sign up for classes in order to obtain a college degree. Instead you stay home and spread your legs and continue to have more children you cannot support! Id would compare degrees to you any day. So sit back and continue typing while we make $$!

And your race is any better, hell we fed your people dog as well. Did you forget? Spanish did come to our country, so where did Filipinos get the idea of eating dog? So I wouldn't make comments of what we supposedly eat.
