Come to think of it...... the last two Asian restaurants I was in, it was 100% hispanics working, none seemed very American at least the ones I heard all had heavy foreign accents.

She first grabbed a bowl, then fumbled below for who knows what, finally her fellow Hispanic colleague mumbled something in Spanish and presto I got my foil.

I guess they taught her enough English to make the food and since the meats are termed in Spanish half the battle was won.

Is Chipotle trying to suggest that the best employees they can find are those with limited English skills? I mean not even getting into whether these employees are legal or not (I have my suspicions) is it legal to have an entire workforce in a multicultural area made up of one ethnic group? Seems like an EEOC violation if nothing else. I can just picture an American teenager walking in applying for a job in Chipotle only to have their app tossed in the trash because they are not Hispanic.
Just wonder, is that the Chipotle in the Ballston neighborhood off of Wilson Blvd? I used to go there for lunch all the time and saw the same thing?

There are a lot of fast food chains in that area that have only Latino employees who are fluent in Spanish. Heck it is hard to a get a customer service related job in that area without being fluent in Spanish. I worked customer service jobs there for 4 years, I know.

I think it's pretty obvious when a business is 100% one race or ethnicity that there is discrimination in hiring going on. Unless the business is maybe no more than 5 people. Why are only some obligated to follow the equal opportunity laws when hiring?
Apparently it is perfectly legal to have a workplace that is only one group of people. I tried unsuccessfully for 8 months to get a banking job closer to home (I got a tech support job 40 miles away) and most of the teller lines and the whole branch were exclusively white women. Then I had to remember I'm in Kentucky.

Bingo!!!! It was at the Ballston one. I'm sorry about your experience in Kentucky. It's becoming apparent that jobs advertising for Spanish speakers especially low level customer service jobs are discriminatory.

I wonder when Obama/Holder will look at this angle.

These "hispanic" businesses very obviously and blatantly discriminate against all other groups. It's common to see businesses where 100% are Spanish speaking, not a solitary black American, white American or any other type. Why in this day of EEOC is this allowed? They may as well put up signs "Help wanted: No non-hispanic or English speaker need apply".
You will find this quite prevelant in the construction industry, landscaping and cleaning businesses now. It is time that whites and blacks start screaming discrimination because that is exactly what it is.

There is a Panda Express near me (Asian fast food place) and all of the workers are Hispanics.

I went to a Taco Bell a couple weeks and was shocked to see 90% of the employees were White.

What happened to the jobs Americans won't do?

Amazing, another race/ethnicity thread. I just hope one day you will realize that this race card thing works both ways.
Closed.
