    If the person is learning she/he shouldn't have a job that requires to interact with english-speaking ppl... why? 'cos it would be unfair to the customer and of course unfair for the worker... I know how it is like to be here and know nothing english... I have just a year and few months here.... and believe me I know how it is to not understand a word...
    It is not discriminating the person... it is preparing the person to work. If u don't know english and ur going to work in a restaurant... you shouldn't be a waitress right the way... u should first learn the language and when ur ready... then work as a waitress...

    The problem isn't that the people who open up the restaurants don't speak English. You have to be pretty well off to buy the franchises in the first places they cost alot of money. The problem is that they hire these Mexicans that just crossed the border and don't understand that very much English. However not knowing English doesn't necessarily mean they just crossed the border because learning another language is very difficult for alot of people.

    If u are refering to me: first I am not mexican
    second: the ppl that come here most of them have nowhere else to go for a job 'cos they have no money.... and 'cos of that, they don't have the money to take english lessons.
    third: It is true that planty of them come "to have a better life" without apporting anything, so then I say: ok send them back or better they come with something to offer.... starting for knowing the language.

    I now see why u are angry about, and u're right:
    they are invading this country and they don't even care about the least which is learning the language. Adding to that:

    Yes, I know that if they could learn that "much" they could learn the rest of it. What it takes is time and effort.... but they should put at least that.... after all they are the ones comming.... no one is calling them
