MILWAUKEE (WTMJ) The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is calling for a federal investigation into Leon’s Frozen Custard’s “English only” policy.
The Milwaukee frozen custard mainstay recently made headlines after the restaurant’s owner told employees they must speak in English at work, which has some customers upset.
Owner Ron Schneider stands by the policy, saying it’s about efficiency.
“It’s strictly business,” Schneider said firmly. “The problem is there are many times here that I don’t have anyone working who speaks another language other than English.”
Still, many of Schneider’s patrons are Hispanic. By Wednesday evening word of the policy had become a talking point among the many customers.
