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

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
