Daktoria, I can testify Pizza Patron is not good tasting pizza. Even though I can order the pizza in Spanish, I don't like their pizza. Lol.
The reason why so many businesses in the USA do business in Spanish is because they need the Spanish-speakers dollars. It is about dollars and profits Daktoria.
I speak Spanish all the time. To my sons, (my older son did not speak it til he came to live with us at age eight and half). Now he speaks it. My husband, and my family. I speak it in the street, and at home and at work, and at school, and in stores, in parking lots. I have my bank account in Spanish (the statements), I have my checkbook in Spanish and in English. The Credit Union sells checkbooks in Spanish and in English. I withdraw cash from the ATM in Spanish.
I go down boulevards with billboards in Spanish. Three blocks from my house they have live theater plays in Spanish. I got my Spanish tv in Spanish from Directv. I got my library books in Spanish. They even have Central Library baby storybook hour in Spanish. Send my kid to a school that teaches Spanish. In third grade it was all subjects taught in Spanish. Want some more? I can tell you some more.
It is not because I want to convert the USA to Spanish. It is about selling things to Latinos in Spanish so the capitalists in the USA can profit from 15% more of the people they need to sell to. They won't let such a little thing like not speaking the language of the customer get in the way. Here the Vietnamese community has signs for their beauty salons, nail salons, restaurants, supermarkets, travel agencies, etc. in Spanish and Vietnamese. It is about business. And their business is not about English only people. They sell to who are the common folks in their city. Statistically speaking over 60% of public school students in this major metro city are Latin kids. Most are either bilingual or know some Spanish. That is a big group. Why are they here? Apparently the city is employing hundreds of thousands of Spanish speaking Latino adults with kids. That is why they are here. No jobs? No people speaking Spanish.
Would you come up to me and tell me to speak English only? I know English Dak. The ones who assume I don't are the paranoid people who listen to me speak Spanish and assume people are monolingual and monocultural. There is more to life than stereotypes of what you think an ethnic group is about. And it is not about some pidgeon hole stereotype.
It is a brave new world out here Dak.
Go to Miami and hear the complaints from the non Spanish-speaking Miamians about not finding jobs unless they speak Spanish. They are pissed off! but hey....it is a numbers game.
If you are not following the crowd out there you are not being flexible....you don't get the job. Smart people do what is necessary to find a job. If that means being bilingual like many in Quebec must be....that is what they do.
