Immigrant Daughter Makes Company Pay When Her Father Is Disrespected By HR
Emily Huynh was outraged when she saw the email her father received in response to a possible job interview with Dash Delivery LLC.
The HR representative, Bruce Peterson responded to Minh Huynh, a Vietnamese immigrant in a completely racist and derogatory nature claiming that he would send the applicant, Huynh, home if it turns out that he “no speak English.”
Sounds like you “no understand basic human empathy” Peterson!
While English comprehension might be an important part of the job, the ‘tude about it was never necessary. Especially since home boy over here probably took 4 years of language classes and still cannot properly string together a sentence.
Although Emily was outraged by the situation and received lots of support from people on the internet, some even encouraging them to sue; Emily tweeted out that her father is unfazed by the situation and would rather put it all behind him.
“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. They brush it off because they don’t understand the depth of the situation. 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,” Huynh said to NextShark
“They have been struggling ever since they got here,” she said about her parents. “Some say that once you get to America, you’re golden, but a lot of immigrants struggle in America as much as they struggled in their homeland.”
In the end, Dash Delivery LLC responded to the incident apologizing for the behavior of their employee and even said that following their investigation, Peterson is no longer with the company. The power of the internet!
