Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Just Filed Request To Hire 61 Foreign Workers

By Sahid Fawaz

Trump seems to like foreigners when they work at his resorts.

CNN reports:

“President Donald Trump’s resort, Mar-a-Lago, filed a request to the Department of Labor for 61 additional visas for foreign servers and cooks, according to a Job Order Records filed on Thursday and Friday.

The Florida resort requested 61 H-2B visas, which are visas for temporary non-agricultural workers. In order to obtain H-2Bs, employers must prove that there are not enough US workers who are ‘able, willing, qualified, and available‘ to do the temporary work. 40 of the visas were for servers, while 21 were for cooks.
 
In January, the resort requested 70 H-2B visas for cookshousekeepers, and servers.
 
The latest request sets the wages at $12.68 per hour for the servers and $13.31 for the cooks. Due to terms set by the visa, employees can only work for the company that sponsors the visa itself. The servers and cooks would work October through May.”
