Trump says you should buy American and hire American and, to that end, he's hiring over 60 foreign cooks and servers at the Mar-a-Lago club and resort.
According to federal records, most of the foreign workers will actually be paid less than they previously were.
From USA Today:
The president's Florida resort — which he has promoted as the "Southern White House" — filed requests with the Department of Labor to obtain 61 visas for foreign workers, according to Job Order records posted Thursday by the department's Employment and Training Administration.
The Mar-a-Lago club asked for 40 H-2B visas for servers and another 21 for cooks. The H-2B visa is for "temporary non-agricultural workers." [...]
According to this week's filing, the cooks would be paid at least $13.31 an hour and the servers would be paid at least $12.68 an hour.
The 40 foreign servers will be paid $12.68 per hour, down from the $13.01 per hour servers were paid in January when the Mar-a-Lago last hired a round of foreign workers.
You know, as a limited liability company, Trump's business benefited from the GOP's tax cuts more than most other businesses and they're still paying their employees less money.
I guess they'll be Great Again.
Update... the Mar-a-Lago is apparently hiring 17 additional workers who haven't been counted in federal records yet for a total of 78, not 61.
UPDATE: Palm Beach County's jobs agency says they've been told @realDonaldTrump's Mar-a-Lago Club is asking to hire *78* foreign guest workers this year, including cooks, waiters and 17 housekeepers.
US Dept. of Labor hasn't posted the application for foreign housekeepers yet. https://t.co/XbLIk5CBSP
