Speaking Spanish shouldn't be a job requirement

Aug 25 2010 - 4:03pm

One of my daughters applied for a dental assisting job at a dental clinic. If she was to get the job, the clinic would train her. She got a phone call from the dentist's office and was asked one question: "Do you speak Spanish?

She repied, "No" and was told, "OK. We don't need you then."

My other daughter works for a big supermarket chain. She has a co-worker who works with the public and who can't speak English. What's wrong with this picture? Why do we have to learn Spanish so we can get a job in our own country?
