Via CNS News (emphasis mine):
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency tasked with enforcing workplace discrimination laws, is suing a private American business for firing a group of Hispanic and Asian employees over their inability to speak English at work, claiming that the English-language requirement in a U.S. business constitutes “discrimination.”
Judicial Watchreported Tuesdaythat the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violatingTitle VIIof the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on “national origin.” The government argues this includes the “linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.”
Just think ... if a worker doesn't have to speak English, how can they be trained to do their job? Must the employer hire a translator to accommodate the non-English-speaking worker? Can the employer make it a requirement that the translator speak English? Or should all employers be required by govt to learn to speak every language of every immigrant group in the US?
