Opinion Letters Grandpa had to learn to speak English

I don’t know about you but when I read our local paper, the first place I go is the classifieds. How about you? I have watched the same ad appear in the paper over several times. The ad and I quote, “Family support position” it then tells you what is required for the job.

With the work outlook in this area poor, I cannot wonder why this job isn’t filled. But read the ad and there is your answer. Spanish speaking preferred. Well, well, when my grandpa came from Sicily, he learned English to get a job. It seems to me the people who will receive this service should learn to speak English. But I guess I am old school. USA first!

Hey, wonder if this is reverse discrimination? Just a thought. With respect,

William L. Trapani — Franklin, N.C.
