Its a rule.....

If they can't speak english, then they shouldn't be able to do it.

What if they were in a building about to collapse, and the chief is yelling "GET OUT!!!! GET OUT!!!!". They would probably stare at each other and be like "lol, que?".

There is no reason they can't learn english.

It's for their own safety.


EDIT:

I just read the article and understood it.

Forget anything I said, that is just plain ridiculous.

if a boss is willing to hire somebody based on work ethic is one thing, but regardless of the language spoken by the person being hired should have any affect on anything. with that being said though, the person hiring others should speak other languages fluently.

agreed.
unfortunately, english isnt the official language of the united states, so it's not mandatory to learn it to be here.


I think it should be. If Europeans and Asians have to, why shouldn't the Hispanics?

Ahaha I love irony. Anyone else?


I love irony when it's actually ironic...


And at least our firemen get fired for legitimate reasons, like putting themselves in tumbledryers when on duty, filming it, and putting the video on youtube.

Every other immigrant group to come to the US has successfully integrated English into their lives, and use it. Why not now?
Genius may have its limitations; stupidity is not thus handicapped.

If the bosses really want to fight fires, then they have to change with the game. They should've seen this coming, but even if not, they should be allowed a brief time to learn some basic spanish before getting demoted...It doesn't really seem like it should be a problem.

true
thats complete bs though. 1 person out of 20 speaks spanish, so the boss has to learn it or he loses his job? what about the rest of the firefighters in the unit? wouldnt it be as important, if not more that they speak it as well?
