¿Cómo?

July 14th, 2008

Let me get this straight.

If you don’t hire someone because they can’t speak English, viagra usa sovaldi you’re practicing illegal discrimination?

A Green Bay pizza crust maker will pay $188, viagra buy sickness 000 to Hispanic job applicants to resolve a discrimination case.

The U.S. Labor Department alleges TNT Crust in 2001 offered a Spanish application form to Hispanics but didn’t hire anyone who filled it out. It also alleged the company made Hispanics applicants take an English test and used the results in deciding not to hire them.

The Labor Department and TNT Crust signed an agreement in May to resolve the case.

Under terms announced Monday, cialis up to 500 Hispanic applicants will divide $188,000 in back pay.

TNT Crust already has since hired 18 Hispanics.

A message left at TNT Crust’s corporate headquarters wasn’t immediately returned.

Pardon my French, but you’ve got to be fucking kidding me.

    […] Elliot has today’s example of the Aztlanization of Green Bay. How long before speaking Spanish is a requirement for employment? I give it 2 years regardless of who wins.   [link] […]

    If a person cannot communicate with customers, why should you hire them? That is like coming down on someone because they won’t hire a deaf person to do telemarketing.

    They should only require people to speak English if it is absolutely necessary for a person to perform his/her job duties. Many people know that they cannot directly discriminate against Hispanics so they may use this as an indirect way to not hire Hispanics. The sad reality is that there is still a lot of racism in this country and many racists know that they cannot get away with direct and open racism. So they come with indirect way to engage in discrimination.

    If the intent of TNT Crust was not to hire anybody who doesn’t speak English, why even offer a Spanish application form? Was that to fool people into thinking that they were being considered for a job?

    Tim, don’t you think they might have been required to communicate clearly and precisely with English-speaking supervisors? Maybe in emergency situations? And I suggest you haul your ass down to your local taqueria and drop off your resume. Let me know when you get hired. Racism in America these days is hardly a white thing. Quite the opposite, in fact.
    And also, who is going to decide if “it is absolutely necessary for a person to perform his/her job duties”…some PC bureaucrat? And wait until the first time their inability to understand causes injury to themselves or to others. Who do you think will be sued?
    Your naivety is astonishing.

    Who is this guy named Tim? Not me.

    As for his assailant, manji88 … nice racist touch with the “taqueria” comment. Oh and this:

    Racism in America these days is hardly a white thing. Quite the opposite, in fact.

    You have got to be kidding. You guys are so ridiculous. You give yourselves away every opportunity.
