Filipino nurses in US fired for speaking Tagalog

Three nurses and a secretary were fired from Bon Secours Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland in April for speaking in Tagalog.

They were fired for violating a policy to speak only English in the hospital’s emergency room.

“All it takes is just one word. That can be a greeting, a remark or even the name of a Filipino dish. Based on this rule, you could say ‘bagoong’ and lose your job

Bagoong! Bagoong!

The employees have complained of arbitrary termination, adding that the rule prohibiting them from speaking in a language other than English violated their rights.

Now you can get mad, Philippines.
