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.”

Never in our history has the USA been what you think. Sadly, I'm old enough to remember neighborhoods where families of several generations could only speak Italian, Czech, Yiddish, Chinese, and other foreign languages. So while our dear leader hasn't helped the matter, he's not the cause blame for the problem.

The problems with Progressivism started long before Mr. (intentional) Obama. We should look back to the Progressive era of Wilson around the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Good luck with that.

como se yama usted ? sign me up for $22.75 an hour. you only need to use 1 sentence over and over.

Would that be Sgt. Schultz's Spanish version "No sé nada?" ;-)

This is the USA.  Spanish is not our official language.  No person should be discriminated against because

they only speak the language that is the official language of the country when they should be serving

those who are citizens and not illegal aliens for health care.  How many languages is one supposed to

speak when working for ACA jobs. 

It never hurts to be able to speak several languages and to be paid a LITTLE extra for the skill. But I'm with you in thinking the official language of the country should be English.

However, I often tell people the way things are going, in the Eastern US one should buy a prayer rug and learn the direction to Mecca, and in the Western US learn Spanish so as to understand, "Por La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada."

I have been commenting for almost a year about how Illegal Aliens and Hispanics are shown preferential treatment in hiring practices of SW KS Employers -- all because the percentage of Illegal non-English speaking residents in that area is so high.

It is getting more difficult to find a job where the employers do NOT require the job candidate to speak both English AND SPANISH.  And this is America. 

Certain areas of America are beginning to resemble foreign countries rather than the good old US.  Where Muslim populations are high, in the Northern US states, will also resemble very, very foreign ways of life to freedom loving Americans --- when the Muslims demand that their customs, culture and way of life is respected OVER AND ABOVE American citizen's freedoms.  And Obama's Administration is pushing vehemently to get more Muslims into the US --- legally or ILLEGALLY.

Obama is the worst sort of TRAITOR, and should be apprehended, tried, judged, and punished as such.

A couple of decades ago I took my wife to NYC looking for a medical school she wanted to attend. In Jamaica Queens NYC while trying to get directions it was about impossible to find someone with a working ability in speaking English. And most of the languages spoken weren't Spanish. ;-(

This is total BS.  I am so posting this.

This man and his administration are duplicate of the crap first derived out of CA - it's the exact same handbook - (seriously).  They've copied Moonbeam almost verbatim.  

where is the precious eeoc when you need them

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
