    Default 3 Trump properties posted 144 openings for seasonal jobs. Only 1 went to a US worker

    “America First” doesn’t seem to apply to the president’s own businesses.

    By Feb 13, 2018, 9:00am EST

    President Donald Trump's businesses don’t seem too concerned about “America First."

    A Vox analysis of hiring records for seasonal workers at three Trump properties in New York and Florida revealed that only one out of 144 jobs went to a US worker from 2016 to the end of 2017. Foreign guest workers with H-2B visas got the rest.

    The H-2B visa program allows seasonal, non-agricultural employers — like hotels and ski resorts — to hire foreign workers when they can’t find American ones. The Trump administration temporarily expanded this guest-worker program in 2017 while restricting other avenues of legal immigration, including the H-1B program for high-skilled workers.

    The Trump Organization is exactly the kind of company that relies on the H-2B visa program for low-skilled workers.

    Vox reviewed recruiting files submitted to the US Department of Labor for two Trump properties in Florida (including Mar-a-Lago) and one in New York from the start of 2016 through the end of 2017. In that period, hiring managers said they were able to find and hire only one qualified American worker — a cook — for 144 open positions for servers, cooks, housekeepers, and bartenders.

    Trump Inc. doesn't want to pay the wage it takes to hire Americans for seasonal jobs at a high end establishment.

    It is a tale as old as time.

    Minimum effort required.

    place an ad in the local newspaper for two days, notify past employees of the openings via US mail, and post the job notice in a visible place at the club for current employees to see


    Yeah... they tried real hard to get American workers.

    You know that whole "do as I say, not as I do" charge they level at the Pelosi's and Schumer's of the world? Seems we can add Trump to the list. And you're right, he'll lose about the same amount of support for it as Pelosi does - almost none.
    All together now!

    or their wage expectations were too high.
    The greatest threat to progressive liberalism is the free and open exchange of ideas.

    The wages are what the value of people's labor is worth.

    If you aren't going to pay that worth, you aren't going to get that labor.

    Especially for seasonal work at a high end resort.

    True. When Trump talks about higher wages for American workers, he means other people should pay more, not him.

    Not sure why this matters at all when more pressing issues are at stake. Per our gracious host, we need to get to the bottom of #spermgate. I support this 100%, no joke.
