Answering systems, food labels, store signs, etc. being in Spanish and blame it on the immigrants?
Businesses choose to offer services/directions/etc. in Spanish to appeal to a wider demographic. It is not required.
The Government does not REQUIRE that the Spanish instructions or signs etc. be offered by companies, or things like highway and street signs would be in Spanish as well.
When you call a government office, you can actually access services in a multitude of languages. Not just Spanish.
I just wish people wouldn't be so blind sometimes.

It doesn't bother me one bit to see signs or labels in Spanish (or any other language). I'm not going to blame anyone because that seems like a ridiculous and petty thing to be wasting my breath on.
I'm with ReneeK, though. I called the power company the other day, and spent 45 infuriating minutes on the phone with a man who couldn't speak English well enough to get his point across. If you're going to hire someone his is b-lingual, great! But at least make sure they can actually SPEAK both languages!

Next question overall
Does anyone here love Nine Inch Nails or knows someone who does?
