Spanish-Speaking Clerks for Obamacare Made Double Compared to English Speakers

Employees working for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services made, on average, twice as much handling non-English Obamacare inquiries compared to clerks speaking English, according to documents obtained by ProEnglish.

The Freedom of Information Act request was secured by ProEnglish, a self-proclaimed advocate for the English language as “America’s common, unifying language” and adoption of English as “the official language at all levels of government.”

The documents obtained showed “English-speaking clerks only earned $12 per hour while translators are paid $22.75 per hour plus a monthly deferential of $643.”

Along with the pay disparity, documents highlighted nearly 12 percent of the awarded contract of $90 million went specifically to the “Spanish-language aspect of phone-enrollment assistance” as well as a separate contract of $1.4 million aimed at “securing the endorsement of a Spanish-speaking celebrity to promote Obamacare.”

And what next?NOTHING!

Hey we let them take over the country and now we let them get away with it, when are we going to get off our asses and do something ?

Its okay when "whitey" gets stomped on.

In today's market, those with language skills are paid for the added skills.  Those that speak only one language, generally, are at the bottom of the wage scale.  This is not unusual, so what's the beef?

Yo quiero Taco Bell so give me $22.75! 

I don't like Taco Bell. They would go broke if they were waiting for me to buy their crappyass food!

So? I don't like McDonalds. We all have different food takes.

whats the beef ? what a pathetic response

You liberals will be the first to scream unfair unfair when demonrats turn this country into a third world sh#$#t hole run by a bunch of thug dictators like that rat you put in in the crackhouse

The "beef" is that America should be English Only! Borders, Language and Culture matter, to paraphrase the great communicator, Michael Savage. If you can't speak English, G.T.F.O! Get The Frick Out ! Now, you Libtard Progressives can call me all your favorite derogatory names.

While I agree that this should be a nation (as it used to be) one nation, one language, the article was not about one language, but the disparity of the skilled, versus the "not so skilled".  They are paying for the skill set.

Well, I'm going to call you sensible. We should make English the official language of the USA and require all levels of government to do business with citizens and residents in English. All official forms for internal use in the country should be in English.

In dealing with foreign diplomats and visitors I see no problem in providing them instructions in their own language with they have to deal with government officials. Have the forms in different languages on a computer and print them when needed.

As for the private sector, let free enterprise dictate their choices and keep government interference out on this area.

Thanks.

USA used to be "learn to speak English or get out."  Since the tinpot dictator in dc, the soroos-sockpuppet boblamea took over, oh now, how wonderful the socialist/Marxist "diversity" is. Screw the bastard, he is not "our prez"!

ALERT ALERT

The Fall Of Fake News!! Quiet Shake-Up At MSNBC After Station Hemorrhages Viewers Following Mueller Debacle 

Reports are surfacing about a quiet shake-up of personnel at MSNBC after the cable news station lost more than 30% of their audience after the Mueller debacle.

Apparently MNSBC doesn’t think their financial woes are newsworthy given that they didn’t run any breathless stories about their own failings.

News of MSNBC’s collapse can’t come as a surprise to insiders who undoubtedly are fully aware that their audience no longer trusts them.

One source familiar told Mediaite the changes came amidst mounting complaints from NBC News chief Andy Lack about a dip in MSNBC’s ratings following the end of the Mueller investigation. In May, ratings for the network in the advertiser coveted 25-54 demo were down 32% year over year.

MSNBC viewers were asked: How much do you agree that MSNBC regularly reports made up or fake news about Donald Trump and his administration?

The responses were devastating! While 35% or respondents agree that MSNBC pushes Fake News, only 24% disagreed. That’s a ratings death sentence!

What do you expect from a channel that boasts disgraced liar, Brian Williams, and race pimp, Al Sharpton?

Flashback: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow’s Ratings Plummet To Yearly Low

MSNBC primetime host Rachel Maddow brought in her worst weekly ratings of the year last week.

Her show last week averaged 2,324,000 viewers, with an average audience of 337,000 in the 25-54 age demographic, both of which mark yearly lows for the liberal television host, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Maddow first saw a dramatic drop in ratings following the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. Her previous low for a week in 2019 was the last week in March, the first full week after Mueller submitted his conclusion to Attorney General William Barr, where she averaged 2,458,000 viewers with 392,000 in the demo.

She spent two years dissecting every aspect of the special counsel’s investigation into whether President Donald Trump conspired with the Russians to win the 2016 presidential election. The night Mueller submitted his findings to Barr, Maddow appeared to hold back tears over the fact that neither the president nor any family members were indicted.

Compared to Maddow’s low ratings last week, Fox News’ Sean Hannity, whose program is often the most-watched among all cable news shows, averaged 3,108,000 viewers with just under half-a-million viewers in the key demographic.

She also nearly tripled CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s weekly ratings. His program only had 880,000 viewers with 225,000 in the key demo.
