Mar-a-Lago, President Donald Trump’s self-described “Winter White House,“ asked the feds’ permission to hire 40 temporary foreign workers as waiters and waitresses — despite his repeated knocks on immigrants and cries to “Hire American!”
The hires come as Trump is mired in an epic battle with Congress over immigration reform, is fighting to have his wall built on the southern border and has faced heat over the separation of nearly 3,000 migrant children from families illegally crossing that border.
The request for the foreign workers was included in records posted by the Department of Labor on Thursday and was first reported by BuzzFeed News.
The article goes on to state the following:
The workers would come in under the H-2 visa program, which lets US employers to hire guest workers under temporary visas if no qualified American workers want the jobs.
Since Trump launched his presidential campaign at Trump Tower in June 2015, his businesses or those bearing his name have sought to hire more than 480 foreign guest workers, including more than 240 for Mar-a-Lago, the website reported.
If Labor green lights the requests, the club will be allowed to employ the workers from October 2018 through May 2019 — height of the tourist season for his Palm Beach golf club and resort.
The jobs would pay $12.68 per hour — $4.43 over Florida’s $8.25 minimum wage — and be eligible for overtime.
