Wow, you just said all other countries have learn to speak English, yet now you complain because you assume a large amount of jobs REQUIRE you to speak Spanish.
I live in Dallas, Texas. One of the most immigrant populated cities in the States. (mainly Mexicans) I have yet to come across a job that requires you to speak spanish. What is true is that some jobs do prefer spanish speakers, because that helps with spanish speaking customers.
You don't deal with customers in a factory. I don't assume. I have seen the ads for these jobs.
In working for over 30 years with immigrants from all over the world, I have seen where most have learned and spoke our language. It wasn't until the influx of illegal spanish speaking people that we had to press 1 for english, have signs everywhere in spanish, jobs that require or preffer that you speak spanish. Other cultures wern't catered to the way the hispanics are.
