PUBLIC SERVICE REPRESENTATIVE 4
(Benefit Consultant - Bilingual, Spanish)
$2,258 - $3,121 MONTHLY
(This salary includes a 5% bilingual differential.)
This position is with the Workers' Compensation Division, Compliance Section, Benefit Consultation Unit, of the Department of Consumer and Business Services (DCBS), and is located in Salem.
As you know from my previous post, the DCBS doesn't want to know if illegal aliens are getting wokers comp benefits.
"The Board supported the general policy that our employees not seek out or report immigration status of any parties who come before this agency."
But the bigger problem for me is that we need benefits workers who speak Spanish. How does a worker get by at a job if they speak no English? Could someone who doesn't speak English function as your co-worker? No.
But some jobs have become Spanish-speaking only positions. If anything is keeping Americans from doing certain jobs that illegal aliens do then it is this. Just as someone who speaks no English couldn't function working with people who don't speak Spanish, an English speaker couldn't work at a construction job site where his co-workers don't speak the same language.
Why would you bother applying to work in agriculture if you have a different culture and language than everyone else? How could you possibly work in a restraunt kitchen if you can't even communicate with the other cooks?
Farmers, contractors and restraunt owners need to stop saying that they can't find American workers if the current majority of their workforce is Spanish speaking.
