My job refuses to pay hispanic workers for translations and interpretation, therefore they made a language line available to all non Spanish speaking employees because our town is about 54% hispanic. Yesterday an employee utilized a hispanic employee to make a call then proceeded to walk away and go into his supervisors office and said im never using the language line they come here on a boat they can leave on a boat, they need to speak English... this was relayed to me by another coworker that felt uncomfortable with the comment and advised me to not translate for him anymore. Well i was highly offended and reported it and also told the other employee to report it! Do you feel that my actions were just? Also, why do i feel so wrong reporting things like that? like i'm going to be penalized for speaking my mind!

You're not making sense.
The language line service, if provided by the business, must be used as a work tool. You cannot rely on "favours" from unvetted language speakers.
