Trump Hires Foreign Workers for Mar-a-Lago Club

Donald Trump wants to hire 61 people from overseas to come and work as waiters and cooks at his luxury Mar-a-Lago resort.

The posting for waiters shows Trump wants to hire five more foreigners for those jobs than in 2017.

The president's opulent Florida beach club wants to hire 21 immigrant cooks from October to May, and another 40 temporary foreign wait staff. BuzzFeed reported that thousands of workers on either H2-A or H2-B visas have been raped, beaten, abused, starved, imprisoned, or financially exploited by their employers. That same week, however, "Mar-a-Lago was applying for foreign worker visas". Last year, the Department of Homeland Security and, soon after, Trump properties reincreased the cap on H-2B visasquested approval to hire dozens of workers.

The latest request sets the wages at $12.68 per hour for the servers and $13.31 for the cooks.

For all his tough talk on immigration from his election campaign to the ongoing migrant crisis brought about by his draconian policies, it seems rather freaky Trump wants foreign workers over USA residents for his beloved resort.

Lopetegui was sacked because he didn't tell Spain's soccer leaders he accepted an offer to coach Real Madrid after the tournament. It was the classic "tiki-taka" style that led to a World Cup title in 2010, bookended by a pair of European Championships.

He's defended hiring foreign workers in the past telling MSNBC in 2015, "Mar-a-Lago is a seasonal job, which is very hard to get people in Florida for seasonal jobs".

The lawsuit claims that the charity was used to promote Trump's private businesses and his presidential campaign, also alleging that Trump requested foundation funds be used to settle a case between the city of Palm Beach, Fla., and Mar-a-Lago. "But other hotels do the exact same thing". Earlier this year, the company asked to hire 14 foreign workers to be cooks and waiters at the Trump golf club in Westchester County, New York.

A review of the Trump Foundation's tax records back to 2008 revealed that almost all of the $706,000 in donations the organization made went to charities that hosted large events at Trump's exclusive south Florida golf resort, according to an analysis by The Palm Beach Post.

Yet Trump's businesses have a history of not hiring American. The Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Va., is looking for 23 H-2B visas.
