Habla Espanol?

Mike called a little while ago. He went out job-hunting this morning, and was specifically looking for work on a framing crew. He's done that before and enjoyed it. And since our church is building a huge, new building, and since the framing crew was going to start this very morning, he decided to start there. So he shows up at 7 am just as the foreman pulls in the parking lot, introduces himself, and asks for a job. The guy's first question? "Are you fluent in Spanish?" WHAT??? Mike laughed and said no, and the guy told him he would never be able to communicate with this crew, as they're all Salvadoran. He offered to call his boss and try to get Mike on the American crew, which he did and Mike now has a job framing, but this is kind of spinning me up. To get a job in America we need to speak fluent Spanish? I'm sorry, but something's just not right here.

Be thankful ~
