Federal Gov’t Sues Wisconsin
Company, Says English-Language
Requirement is ´Discrimination´

CNS News, by Brittany M. Hughes

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 7/3/2014 7:51:42 AM

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 Watch reported Tuesday that the government is accusing Wisconsin Plastics, Inc. of violating Title VII of 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.” Irene Garcia, the blog editor and Spanish media liaison for

The term "national origin" should not include the "inability to speak English at work." Surely a case could be made under OSHA regulations that health and safety could well be compromised (not just for the employee but also fellow employees and customers/patients) if an employee cannot understand health and safety regs.

If discrimination was the reason for termination, why would the company have hired the employees in the first place?

From a safety and liability point of view being proficient in a single language in the workplace could mean the difference between life and death in an emergency, or should employers simply be shielded from liability when of a workplace accident is caused by a language barrier???

I work for a state government agency and we require that all of our employees be able to speak and write in English. I guess the feds should sue us, too.

Next year, my granddaughter´s Catholic grade school will have a required course in Spanish. Over the past three years, there has been an influx of Hispanics to the school (on our beloved vouchers) and they are requiring the other kids to learn Spanish.

I wonder if the pesky Religion course will be dropped for this?

What is needed is a federal law stating America is a English speaking country and English is the only language all must learn and use at all times in every communication with no documents printed or used for legal or otherwise in any language that is not solely English.

Okay, what´s good for the goose is good for the gander:

1. Sue Obama for not giving his speeches in multiple languages.
2. Sue the military for not giving their orders and commands in multiple languages.
3. Sue Miami for discriminating against English speaking workers by designated Spanish to be the official language of the city.

And on and on.

Speaking and writing English should be a minimum requirement for citizenship, for working in the U.S., for going to school in the U.S., etc. English speaking Americans should not have to alter their way of life to suit immigrants or anyone else in the U>S> If anyone does not wish to learn how to read and write English, he/she should remain in their Country of origin.

I am Texican and fluent in Spanish. When around Mexicans who go on in "Spanish", or what purports to be Spanish, to exclude me from their conversations, I join in much to their surprise; I commence in Spanish with every Mexican I meet and to a man and woman they are put off, uncomfortable, and resent same, clammng up around and with the Anglo.

Now we have three ongoing assaults on American culture all from this trio if racist groups who cannot govern themselves, and all of whom are followers of Thanantos and are determined to destroy America´s heritage and are doing a damn good job of it as we PC bleeding heart ourselves into third-world chains.

Living in a sea of brown from around the world, this burns me up. Those speaking their language assume you have no clue what they are saying. Worse yet, is companies that will not hire Americans or have signs in front of their business in another language that indicates they don´t want Americans as customers. This week I told a Haitian that I have only met one person who said they were grateful to be in this country.

Another company only hires Columbian drivers and some of them don´t comprehend English.

A friend tells me the tractor trailer drivers that show up to deliver at their business do not speak a word of English. How can they read road signs ? Isn´t that a safety hazard ?

# 7 That issue came before Slick before his second term and he vetoed it. I wrote to him about it and his letter came the day for the election. "Everybody has the right to vote" Especially if they were voting for him in 20 languages on a NY ballot.

#16, the drivers not speaking English is a hazard. There was a ghastly bus crash on the East Coast, and the driver (I think Chinese) couldn´t speak or read English.

Peter King (R-LI) has been trying to get English declared our language for years.

As the midterm campaigns heat up, Democratic candidates are turning to the White House for help and an injection of star power. But it is the first lady, not President Barack Obama, ?who in some places is emerging as the more sought-after campaigner. Some Democrats contend that Mr. Obama´s sagging popularity limits where he would be helpful this election cycle. Bringing higher approval ratings and a less-partisan pitch, Michelle Obama already has hit the trail, appearing earlier this month in Georgia with Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. Next month, the first lady´s campaign travel will include a visit to Iowa, where

Environment: The joke in Washington is that climate change alarmists in the White House care more about ice than ISIS. But it´s no joke. The world is aflame in violence and barbaric acts of terrorism, and Secretary of State John Kerry is running around warning one of the biggest problems facing the planet — ranking "right up there" with "terrorism, epidemics, poverty (and) the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction" — is global warming. Good thing almost no voters agree with him. Politico´s latest poll shows just 2% of likely voters in competitive House and Senate races listed the "environment"

We were not impressed by the methods or findings of the Accountability Review Board (ARB) after the terrorist attack on our Benghazi diplomatic mission on Sept. 11, 2012, starting with not interviewing the person where the buck was supposed to stop, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Washington—President Barack Obama plans to dramatically boost the U.S. effort to mitigate the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, including greater involvement of the U.S. military, people familiar with the proposal said. Mr. Obama is expected to detail the plan during a visit Tuesday to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, these people said. Among the possible moves: sending additional portable hospitals, doctors and health-care experts, providing medical supplies and conducting training for health workers in Liberia and other countries.

Homeland Insecurity: President Obama has vowed to "hunt down (Islamic State) terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are" in Iraq and Syria. News flash: They´re also in American mosques. Yet Obama is not going after terrorists in radical mosques. And he´s making it harder for local governments to stop the construction of recruiting and training centers for the enemy. In fact, as a grand jury investigates another Minneapolis mosque for radicalizing recruits for ISIL, the Justice Department is suing local officials for blocking a new extremist mosque in the area.

Moses, famously, tried to get out of it.

Though he displayed some of the traits you’d expect from a guy who would rather be back shepherding (passivity, whining), he became a great leader. (Snip)History is full of reluctant leaders, too.

More than six months after protesters drove President Viktor F. Yanukovych from power, however, his lavish estate on a forested bluff north of Kiev, the capital, displays how difficult it is to bring real change. It also stands as a dark warning that Ukraine’s troubles reach far beyond the war zone in the east of the country. “This was

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton.

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God.

When the U.S. military strikes, its leaders often choose colorful code names for the operation that sometimes stick in history, like Operation Overlord or Rolling Thunder or Desert Storm. Not this time. The U.S.-led air campaign against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria doesn´t have a name. "I know of no plans at this point to name it," Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said Thursday. Since World War II, almost every U.S. military operation, large and small, has had a code name. And that name usually sticks when veterans talk about the conflicts in which they participated, such
