The whole reason Americans are being told they must learn Spanish is because the Spanish speaking immigrants and their children are unable to learn English. And we're not being told we must learn Chinese, Vietnamese, French, Arabic and other languges as the immigrants speaking those language quickly pick up English. It's just the one group.
Ok, then do not learn spanish. Jeez.

I personally do not want to have kids and probably will never have one, but I do thank my family for give me the opportunity of learning so many languages.

It has made a huge difference in my life

I can understand people being afraid of change, but I will never understand people being afraid of their kids learning new things. I would not like my (hypothetical) kids not to have access to as many skills. Education does make a difference in people's lifes.

That company might have practiced "bad business" by having only Spanish-speaking" employees, but that is not illegal or in any way forces you to speak Spanish.
