Trump’s resort request to hire 61 foreign temporary workers

Trump's Mar-a Lago estate in Palm Beach

There's "help wanted" at The Trump Organization's Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The posting for waiters shows Trump wants to hire five more foreigners for those jobs than in 2017.

According to records submitted to the U.S. Labor Department on Thursday and Friday, Mar-a-Lago also filed requests to obtain several visas for non-American servers and cooks, stating that the potential hires would stay in the U.S. for a period of seven months, earning between $12 to $13 an hour, depending on the position.

The West Palm Beach senior care charity MorseLife Foundation received a $25,000 donation from the foundation in 2012, the after it moved its annual dinner dance to Mar-a-Lago.

According to the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the employer filing for H-2B visas must demonstrate that there are "not enough U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified, and available" and that the foreign workers "will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers".

The seasonal workers would be required to return to their home country once their H-2B visas expire.

Environment Canada issued a smog warning as "high concentrations of pollutants are expected to persist through the night". The other victims were reported in the southwest of the French-Canadian province, the Quebec health ministry said.

The Mar-a-Lago Club has repeatedly used foreign workers in the past.

Other Trump businesses have hired foreign workers for temporary jobs.

Last year, after Trump said there were "very fine people" among violent crowds of protesters in Charlottesville, many of Trump's longtime charity clients quit. "Other hotels do the exact same thing". This request comes just over a year after Trump signed his "Buy American and Hire American" executive order.

If the request is approved, Mar-a-Lago will be allowed to employ the workers from October 2018 until May 2019.

Trump has criticized USA companies for employing foreign workers, but has defended Mar-a-Lago's hiring practices, saying there aren't enough local applicants. Apart from many other ramifications, it could blow back on his beloved resort as it majorly relies on foreign workers, majority Haitians, to fill seasonal jobs that Americans apparently don't want.
