Letters to the Editor

Being bilingual means opportunity

Regarding "Lack of Spanish keeps me unemployed" (Dec. 28, Letters): If you are living in this country, you must learn English; but, objectively speaking, if you have a business and many of your clients do not speak English, I'm sure you are going to hire employees who are bilingual. This is not discrimination; it's just putting the needs of your customers first in order to stay in business.

It is a fact, whether we like it or not, that being bilingual means more opportunities. What makes a country great is when its citizens learn to respect and appreciate its multicultural heritage and when they don't see each other as enemies.
