The Colorado Auraria campus in Denver have themselves a bunch of Spanglish only janitors. And they're pissed. Senora Berta Ribota says she got hurt at work because she couldn't read a sign written in English.
“If I could speak English I wouldn’t have the problems that exist,” Berta said through her interpreter lawyer.
Last week twelve Hispanic janitors filed an EEOC complaint against the college. The lawyer for the cleaning crew says forcing his clients to learn and speak English is a violation of their rights. He further contends that the college intentionally screws with his clients by keeping them in a language corner.
The school points out there is no law that requires them to accommodate non English speakers. In fact, “...Our employees are expected to interact with members of the public and that interaction we expect them to be able to understand English,” said a campus spokesman.
The Angle has to ask the obvious - if the school expected their employees to speak English then why hire people who don't speak English? Or is that asking too tough a question...
Wanna bet the Obama/Acorn/Ayers/SEIU is behind this?
