Target, Redwood City, CA Complaint - Workers not Speaking English while working in AMERICA
REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA -- Employers (even mine) have rules about speaking English while at work.
I am, also, employed at a Department Store and they are very strict about us not speaking another language to each other once at work. I, myself, grew up speaking another language at home.
I decided not to go to the Redwood City Target because I am tired of this. I will go to the Foster City Target where they all speak English to each other.
Within a half hour last time I was at Target, all the employees I passed, spoke Spanish to each other. These were Lupita, Martha, Clara, Ceilia, Virginia, Wilson, Josefina, and Patty.
It is disrespectful to be at work here in America and have your employees speaking another language. It is rude to speak around other people when they don't know what you are saying. We have a common language and English is it. Being able to communicate with the boss, with one's co-workers, with customers, and with the police and other emergency workers isn't an unreasonable expectation for most employees. There should be a company policy to speak English only when communicating with others on the production floor.
