    • I was assigned a duty that I was able to get out of 2 years ago by my previous employer. Not only did I dislike it, I was not good at it and was very unhappy for 4 years. I love my current position, but the new boss says the young and bilingual workers are above me and assigned me this job that I dislike. I feel that I am not valued for doing a good job in my current position and because I am not young and bilingual she penalizes me.

    • I have not however I do notice more job descriptions are including that in it. And depending on where you live that could be a handy asset to have.
      If I wanted the job , promotion or project then I would invest in learning another language.

    • I have not.  In my current job, it’s not necessary.

    • The bi-linguals get paid more on the hour than we do.

    • I’ve never had it be an issue anywhere that I work.  Around here there is nothing spoken or even acknowledged but English.

      Having worked as a waitress, I’ve picked up a little bit of a lot of languages, at least enough to communicate over a dinner order with tourists from abroad.

      If it made me a couple $ more an hour, I’d gladly learn another language.
