My question is why do we outsource jobs in the US and/or allow migrant workers to take jobs away from us in America? Why can't legislation limit this approach? In the past 10 or so years I have seen jobs being taken over by the Hispanic population specifically those from South America. I remember when I was 16 working at McDonalds as my first job when I was in high school. Now all you see are illegal immigrants from Latin America there. Also, It seems that we are so worried about being politically correct that we don't require any foreigner to speak our language as it may be misinterpreted as prejudice. I hate having to order my food from Wendy's, McDonalds, or Dunkin Donuts in spanish. When my grandfather came over from Italy he had to learn how to read and write engish. Why is this standard not there anymore? Why have we gone complacient over the years? I think our country is being invaded and we aren't doing anything about it. I'm not saying this to be racist or prejudice... if we went to their country we would be expected to adhere to their language and culture. Why isn't this so in the US?
Outsourcing is the result of our free economy. If it is cheaper for a business to perform the operation of manufacturing or other business activity in other countries, then that is their right. It is the high cost of labor and benefits that has driven so many businesses to other countries. Part of this is the result of Unions and the other part is caused by too much government regulation and interference.
Migrant workers usually take jobs that other American adults aren't interested in. It is their willingness to work for less that allows some businesses to compete and survive.
As to having to speak Spanish when ordering fast food, that is your fault for patronizing an establishment that doesn't serve the needs of the general public by requiring their workers to speak English besides Spanish.
Most of your complaints are the result of the freedoms we have in America. I would much rather put up with some of these things than sacrifice any of our freedoms.

i hope you do not take offense, To that that's gone before; 'Tis only that it's my two-cents, And not one penny more. §;o)
Dude you need to chill the fuck out. who cares about speaking a different language when you have to order shit you should be glad you get to be fucking bilingual. that's what makes The United States so different and unique from other countries it's because we have different people in this country that keeps coming to America. I do agree that people that migrate over here should speak english. Sorry to be so mean it just pisses me off to hear about only one race that doesn't speak english, when many other races don't speak english either. You shouldn't be blaming only hispanics.
The politicians have sold us out - certainly legislation could turn this around but they will do Nothing about this huge problem - you're right, many have no desire to 'assimilate' into our culture as was gladly done in the past - on this and many subjects across the board, they have no interest in looking after what is best for the American people - it's me, me, me, how can I line my pockets, give myself more raises, benefits, etc.
