Trumpies hiring foreigners to clean rooms and cut vines

Trump Vineyard Seeks More Foreign Workers
As Donald Trump prepares to assume the presidency after campaigning to restore American jobs, a Virginia winery owned by his son, Eric Trump, has applied for permission to import more foreign workers to prune grapevines.
...
Combined with this latest request, companies owned by Trump or bearing his name have sought permission from the Department of Labor to hire at least 263 foreign guest workers since he launched his presidential campaign. Many work as servers and house cleaners at Mar-a-Lago, his Florida estate.

So, he saved 800 carrier jobs temporarily (the companies plans to eventually replace most of the saved jobs with robotics), and took away 263.

I know someone will come back and say that he hires foreigners at Mara-Lago because of a dearth of seasonal workers...
CareerSource Palm Beach County, a nonprofit job placement agency, says it knows plenty of American citizens willing to work at Mar-a-Lago.

“We have hundreds of qualified candidates and hundreds of job orders for various hospitality positions such as servers, chefs, cooks, bartenders, housekeeping, guest services, spa services, recreation, maintenance and more,” CareerSource spokesman Tom Veenstra said.

While Mar-a-Lago asks the federal government for dozens of H-2B visas every tourist season, the private club has asked CareerSource for help finding a local employee only once in the past decade, Veenstra said. That was a 2015 request for a single banquet server.

Hardly surprising and pretty much expected.

To add my two cents' worth, I posted something about the Mar-a-Lago situation some time before the election.

The fact that Trump was hiring foreign workers when the county said it had plenty of eligible job seekers available locally didn't seem to bother Trump's supporters, at least not those on the Stew. And so it goes.
I enjoy reading NorthAmerican's posts. So well-written and interesting except for the dull parts.--Nines

I remember that you posted.

Trump was right that he could shoot someone on 5th Ave. and his supporters wouldn't care...

Did any of those 263 who lost their jobs to these immigrants (though we'll never know who they are) not vote for Trump?

Suck on it!

But this was never about THOSE type of jobs, surely. Same with UKIiP - guest workers are fine to do the seasonal, agricultural jobs, just so long as they don't get uppity, think they're entitled to, well rights like local wages/minimum wage, residency.

UKIP politians in the fruit growing area of the UK, want to keep foreign workers, they just want to errode their rights and status, is all.
