The Racist Job Rejection Email This Guy Got Is SHOCKING
A viral tweet is shedding light on the discrimination faced by non-english speakers.
Emily Huynh posted an alarming rejection email her father received from a prospective employer.
The email read, "Let me tell you now, if you no speak English, I will send you home," signed from the HR/Hiring Manager at Dash Delivery in Washington, Bruce Peterson.
The business has copped a lot of backlash and could face legal ramifications.
Non-English speakers really have it hard bc my dad just got rejected from this job offer and the email literally stated “Let me tell you now, if you no speak English I will send you Home-“ Wtf.. + all of Bruce’s emails we’re also very unprofessional & passive aggressive pic.twitter.com/YDXNHVW7bH— wowie its emily (@staleboba) January 23, 2018
Emily has said that her father didn't take personal offence, but there's a much bigger problem at large.
“My dad told me that he isn’t that ‘hurt’ by it, but there’s a big stigma around Asian immigrant parents that deal with this all the time," she said.
"People always use micro aggressions with or without knowing they do which is a big concern when it comes to the treatment of future citizens. I’m just disgusted."
Update: My dad isn’t that hurt, he just doesn’t fully understand the concept of someone not hiring him for his lack of English when he has more experience than most people. pic.twitter.com/xa2DA9kn7h— wowie its emily (@staleboba) January 23, 2018
I understand that the job requires English but his email(s) could’ve been handled way more professionally. This email was gross, unnecessary and degrading.— wowie its emily (@staleboba) January 23, 2018
Emily's father, Minh Huynh, immigrated to America in 1995.
He's worked as a restaurant owner, an overnight truck driver for 13 years and was awarded the company’s safest driver. Unfortunately, he was let go from the job after not being able to attain a certain license on time.
“For the past 2 years he has been jobless and has been doing odd part-time jobs," Emily said.
"He is having a way harder time finding a job, he’s been on his laptop day and night trying to email people while using Google translate. He always asks me and my brother for help but we’re not home most of the time because of school.”
