My wife has a manager who made a comment about spanish speaking at work, The ahole is Armenian. Does anyone here have HR experience? btw he speaks it at work with others of his own race. Whats your opininon? Mine is it should all be egual. Freedom of speech and all.

I have HR experience, and this manager is just being a jerk. Considering he speaks his native language, but doesn't think it's appropriate or makes people uncomfortable that speak theirs, I'd say it was time for someone to have a talk with him about discrimination. If the company has no policy, which I'd doubt they do, about speaking foreign languages at work this guy needs to keep his opinion to himself.

Yeah precisely. If I was younger and dumber I would have acted on it violently, but I know I know violence does not solve nothing.
