Trump’s Mar-a-Lago seeks to hire 61 foreign workers

Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago applies for 40 additional foreign hires

Critics of the visa program claim it is a tool employers can use to exploit vulnerable foreign workers and represses wages for American workers by providing a cheap labor source for companies.

The Palm Beach Post in South Florida is reporting that the Donald Trump Foundation in Palm Beach County, Florida donated $706,000 to charities since 2008-and nearly all of the donations went to charities that hosted expensive fundraisers at President Trump's private Mar-a-Lago resort.

H-2B visas, however, can only be obtained if there are no American workers available, which the President has insisted otherwise throughout his campaign and presidency. The H-2B visa is for "temporary non-agricultural workers". That same week, however, "Mar-a-Lago was applying for foreign worker visas".

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

These ads, however, were not posted until after Mar-a-Lago had already filed requests to hire 70 foreign workers. During the season, you can't get people. But as a request from the president's Mar-a-Lago golf club to hire 61 people from overseas demonstrates, putting that preference into practice can prove hard.

Mar-a-Lago's competitors in Palm Beach, including other social clubs and hotels, have also used foreign labor. According to HuffPost, Trump's Florida business has filed at least 10 different requests to hire foreign workers since 2015.

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.

In the midst of President Trump's "Made in America Week" at the White House over a year ago, Trump had said, "We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first". The Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Va., is looking for 23 H-2B visas.
