Salvation Army Says English Only - Government Sues

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)has decided to sue the Salvation Army because they require English only from their employees.

Two Spanish-speaking employees were given a year to learn Englsih or they would be terminated. The employees failed to do so & they were fired.

In steps the EEOC, whose lawyers go out of their way to find employers to sue. The EEOC filed a lawsuit against the Salvation Army claiming the employees had suffered "emotional pain, humiliation and embarrassment" as a result of the English-only policy

The Salvation Army is one of the most beneficial organizations in the world. Their good deeds & charity are renown. They are also a religious organization.

But the EEOC, aka Big Brother, has decided that they will impose their will upon the Army. In 2003 aFederal judge upheld the Salvation Army policy, but EEOC is not satisfied & looking for another ruling, more favorable to it.

Paul Weyrich writes in his column, "Then there is the EEOC itself, an organization which has spent the last 25 years or so filing lawsuits on behalf of real (and imagined) victims of every possible type of discrimination: sex, age, disability, race, etc. Often these lawsuits are against individuals and other times against large corporations or public agencies. A result has been thousands of hours spent by employers attempting to avoid litigation. I shudder to think of the amount of effort and money spent on lengthy seminars and briefings for human resource departments while American jobs have been disappearing overseas on almost a daily basis.

"One of the latest EEOC "campaigns" is to end background checks by many employers because they might discriminate against people who have served prison terms. Now sometimes people do deserve a second chance when they have paid their debt to society but shouldn't the employer get to decide whether to hire someone with a criminal record? Imagine a future time when an employer could be fined for not hiring someone with a criminal record. I have no trouble believing that this is what the EEOC would like to see happen."

Big Brother at its best.
