Metro job description may be in jeopardyThe Hispanic Nashville Notebook hosts a job site called the Workbook, but it is not the only Hispanic or bilingual employment listing in Middle Tennessee.
Franklin's Latin Market Communications circulates a monthly job listing in the bilingual paper Que Pasa and also makes the list available by e-mail. The July 2008 Que Pasa jobs are below, including a Metro job requiring Spanish (if this job's use of Spanish is discretionary and considered "official" communications, would a proposed Metro charter amendment* outlaw the bilingual part of the job description?).
Two other jobs that have come to my attention lately are the voice talent opening below, and the next job for a bilingual teacher at First Steps.

BILINGUAL JOBS*The relevant language in the proposed charter amendment is, "[A]ll official government communications and publications shall be published only in English." Who decides what "official" means? Who decides what "communications and publications" means - i.e. is a verbal communication in another language forbidden if the verbal communication is not "published"?
