This is not the America we used to know.
Check it out:
America. It used to be a place where speaking English wasn’t just the norm—it was a requirement to ‘make it’ in this country. When my grandfather came to America from Greece (legally, I might add) in the 1930s, English language courses and U.S. history were required to become licensed in his profession. Now, apparently, requiring English proficiency in the workplace is discrimination.
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.”
