One would think that in order to hold a job in America that a person would be required to speak our native language. After all, it’s extremely hard to work for somebody if you can’t communicate with them and to force an employer to learn the language of every foreign worker they had would be outrageous. Unfortunately, the idiots in the White House can’t seem to comprehend such a simple concept, and are now preparing to sue a private company for requiring their employees to be fluent in the language of their employers, how does that make you feel?
The case involves a Green Bay plastic and metal manufacturer who fired some Asian and Hispanic workers that didn’t speak a bit of English, which Obama’s Employment Commission says is discriminatory since “those skills were not needed to perform their jobs,” according to the agency. According to Judicial Watch, the Obama administration says that forcing employees to speak English in America violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Now, you want to hear the insane reasoning behind their decision to sue?
The Equal Opportunity Employment Commission (EEOC), who enforces workplace discrimination laws, says that the Civil Rights Act protects employees from discrimination based on national origin, this includes the linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.
Translation? Foreigners have the right to speak their native tongue while at work even if they work at an American company that requires English.
The attorney who’s representing the government says that English-only requirements are implemented to mask discrimination from employers and make it seem acceptable.
“When speaking English fluently is not, in fact, required for the safe and effective performance of a job, nor for the successful operation of the employer’s business, requiring employees to be fluent in English usually constitutes employment discrimination on the basis of national origin — and thus violates federal law,” he said.
According to Judicial Watch:
“The agency has been on a roll ever since, taking legal action against businesses across the country accusing them of everything from discriminating against minorities for running criminal background and credit checks to discriminating against Muslims for not allowing hijabs on the job. The criminal background and credit checks disproportionately exclude blacks from hire, according to EEOC lawsuits against several companies. Businesses that forbid Muslim women from wearing a hijab at work violate religious rights guaranteed under the nation’s civil rights laws even when all head coverings are banned for all employees, the EEOC asserts.”
They also note that last year, an Obama-appointed judge engaged in judicial activism and ruled that a Muslim woman’s civil rights were violated by an American clothing manufacturer that didn’t allow her to wear her head scarf as required by her Muslim Faith. Abercrombie & Fitch has a strict policy against head coverings for any of its employees, however the EEOC sued them on behalf of a 19-year-old Muslim girl because they wouldn’t allow her to wear her hijab during work hours.
Welcome to Obama’s America, where now even requiring people to speak our native language is discriminatory against immigrants. How about the people behind this try to go to some other country and try to survive without speaking the native tongue, bet they wouldn’t make it too far.
