A group of Hispanic custodians at Denver’s Auraria Campus are suing their employer, claiming they are victims of discrimination. One of those
custodians, Bertha Ribota, claims she was injured on the job as a result of not being able read a warning sign in English, CBS reports.
TWO WORDS: Contributory Negligence.
Contributory negligence in common-law jurisdictions is defense to a claim based on negligence, an action in tort. It applies to cases where
plaintiffs/claimants have, through their own negligence, contributed to the harm they suffered. For example, a pedestrian crosses a road negligently
and is hit by a driver who was driving negligently. Since the pedestrian has contributed to the accident, they cannot sue the driver for damages
because the accident would not have occurred if it weren't for the pedestrian's own negligence. Another example of contributory negligence is where
a plaintiff voluntarily disregards warnings and assumes a certain level of risk, although accepting reasonable risk while attempting to rescue another
person is not considered contributory negligence.
I almost hit the roof when I read this article.
Two more words: LEARN ENGLISH!
English is the official language of the United States. Always has been, and hopefully always will be. This has nothing to do with your nationality.
This has everything to do with where YOU choose to live.
I am so tired of the Political Correctness. Tired of having to sift through Spanish on my Black and Decker drill box, just to get to the ENGLISH
instructions. So tired to see the WASTE of money that companies have to spend just to include SPANISH on documentation, signs, and everything else.
We are giving in to the minority language. Why?!
To EVEN THE PLAYING FIELD?
