I understood this article to say that they wanted the employees to learn the language to accomodate the spanish speaking customers. I don't see how this would affect the english speaking customers. The employees would just speak english to them.
Not sure I understand what you're asking, but if it's "Why would people boycott the store?" then that's easy. It's the principal of the whole thing. A group of people have jobs, and now they are forced into learning a foreign language to coddle the people in America who refuse to learn the language spoken in America. Just plain silly to me. Optional and maybe a salary bump or raise for learning a foreign language? Sure, no problems here. Forcing them to learn it or lose their jobs? Ridiculous.
However, as I noted in earlier posts, the business owner does have the right to do what he's doing, as he believes it will increase sales for his business, and he's got every right to choose to cater to the needs of his customers. Doesn't mean I have to agree with it on a moral level though.
Really no different than the cheesesteak place in the article I posted. People will go to that cheesesteak place simply due to the "Must speak English" sign. I know if I was in the area, I'd give them my business anytime I wanted a cheesesteak, as I agree 100% that if you're in America, you should speak English. Any person or company that supports that, will earn my business in return. Any business that thinks we should coddle those who refuse to learn the language by forcing their employees to learn a foreign language, will in turn, lose my business as I highly disagree that the country should bend over for those who refuse to have a little common courtesy for the land in which they live.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
