Opinion Letters What’s up in America?

I’ve been reading the want ads in our local papers for state and county jobs.

What’s happening? I read down the requirements for the position and there it is: Spanish required. Why? My grandparents came from Sicily and in their day, English was required to get a job and they learned. Nowadays, if you don’t speak Spanish, you are not qualified for the position. Those people who want the service from our community should be required to speak some English.

All we are doing is penalizing our countrymen who would like to apply for the position.

 

Well, guess I’m just an old American who still believes to work here, speak English good or bad.
