Trump Wants 40 Foreign Mar-a-Lago Workers

According to federal Department of Labor documents BuzzFeed first dug up yesterday, the Trump Organization has filed a request for 40 more foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago, the douchey villa he owns in Palm Beach that will hopefully be swallowed by the ocean one day soon.

The Florida luxury resort is requesting 61 temporary foreign worker visas as it looks to fill 21 cook and 40 server positions, according to U.S. Department of Labor records filed Thursday and Friday. In the lawsuit filed June 14, she called the Trump Foundation a "little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their goal or legality".

The President's infamous golf resort, Mar-a-Lago, recently filed requests to hire 61 foreign workers.

The postings show that - despite Trump's insistence that immigration is holding down wages and crowding out native-born American workers - his club believes it can not find any Americans in South Florida who are qualified to hold two very common restaurant-industry jobs.


Other charities that hosted events at Mar-a-Lago and benefited from the Trump Foundation's generosity around the same time were the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, The Palm Beach Police Foundation, the Nicklaus Children's Health Care Foundation, the Palm Beach Zoo, and Caron Treatment Centers, among others. Furthermore, The New Yorker reported this March, "Since 2010 Mar-a-Lago alone has obtained a total of 500 H-2B visas for seasonal foreign workers".

Rates for cooks start at $13.31 an hour, three cents less than a year ago.

"It's very, very hard to get people", he said during a GOP primary debate in 2016. The nearby Everglades Club - known for being more private in its affairs and restrictive in its admissions than Trump's club - also posted an application seeking to hire 15 foreign cooks for the coming season, at the same salary as Trump's club. "But other hotels do the exact same thing". Many resorts in the Palm Beach area use the program to find seasonal help.

Despite President Trump's push for USA companies to hire American workers, even his own businesses are not complying. And the Trump Winery near Charlottesville sought to employ 23 foreigners.
