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.
BuzzFeed spotted the job listings Thursday, which were made despite Trump crowing that immigrants are holding down wages and taking jobs from American-born workers.
According to applications filed this week with the U.S. Labor Department, Mar-a-Lago wants to hire 40 waiters and waitresses at $12.68 an hour and 21 cooks at $13.31. At the end of mentioned period, they would be expected to return home.
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 Palm Beach Zoo and Morselife Foundation received $25,000 after hosting events at Mar-a-Lago. The Mar-a-Lago club is just one example, Trump's golf club in NY and Trump Winery in Virginia also hired dozens of foreign workers. Host an event at its own Mar-a-Lago Club.
Other Trump-related businesses have also gone outside the U.S.to pad its seasonal work force. "They can't get people George".
The increases in the numbers of foreign workers sought by Mar-a-Lago come at a time when the club's business model seems to be changing - transformed, by Trump's divisive politics from a club focused on charity galas to a GOP clubhouse frequented by Trump's friends and allies.
Mar-a-Lago's competitors in Palm Beach, including other social clubs and hotels, have also used foreign labor. The servers and cooks would work October through May.
President Donald Trump may have repeatedly urged US businesses to "hire American", but his own Mar-a-Lago resort doesn't appear to be heeding his call. Many resorts in the Palm Beach area use the program to find seasonal help.
