Oh that's right, one way is legal and the other isn't.

Correct.
But it doesn't seem to have much to do with the topic. Which is Trump's "southern White House" seems to be not "hiring American."


I think you’re confusing Trumps winter whitehouse with the mar-a-lago club. Trumps residence is separate from the club.

I stand corrected. Thank you.
Same property, right?

A private wing of the same property. I’m not sure if the private wing utilizes the amenities of the club.

We've seen that Trump often entertains officials and foreign dignitaries at the club.


But, Trump owns it all, right? It's his.

He probably wants people who can't speak English so they can't eavesdrop on conversations.

I admit it. If I took a job there as a waitress, I would eavesdrop the hell out of every table I served, and widely disperse what I heard. I would. In fact, eavesdropping would be my only motivation to work there.

Hm. I wonder how the tips are?

It is in the real-estate portfolio of the Trump Organization.

I don't know.

Has the resort provided any evidence that they cannot find citizens to fill the positions?

I don't know.

Do other companies do the same thing?

It appears Trump's own supporters are unfamiliar with what his positions are when it comes to the issues. It took me 5 seconds on google.



Did you really think showing them Trumps own quote would get them to admit the hypocrisy?



Of course not! The religious overtones have taken over the defense of Trump.

They are hiring cooks and waiters.

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."


I wonder if this is a seasonal thing they do to temp fill needed positions that are only needed for X number of months?

I wonder if they seek US citizens to fill the positions.

That's part of the process to get the visas right?

.... but you already knew that.

No.


Palm Beach's unemployment rate currently sits at 3.6 percent. A local job placement agency told the Post that there are plenty of local workers who would be eager to fill the positions.

"We currently have 5,136 qualified candidates in Palm Beach County for various hospitality positions listed in the Employ Florida state jobs database," CareerSource spokesman Tom Veenstra said Friday.

More to the point, did Mar a Largo place any postings for job openings?

They have in the past. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t this time.


A U.S. Labor Department spokesman told PolitiFact Florida that 93 people applied for 250 seasonal job openings. Four were hired, while 79 didn’t answer interview requests or turned down jobs (10 applications were classified with unknown status).

Documents the resort later filed with the Labor Department showed that many of the American applicants weren’t hired because they didn’t meet requirements. Some applicants didn’t want to work split shifts, or didn’t have enough experience. Many wanted full-time jobs instead of part time, or didn’t respond when the resort contacted them. One applicant said they only were applying as a prerequisite to continue getting unemployment.

Oh so Mar-a-Lago legally employees immigrants?
Cool...
Next...

Why you even wasted your life writing this is beyond me.
Told you yesterday he uses the system in place. Doesn't mean he agrees with it.
If he only hired natural citizens you would ramp up the racist rhetoric. There is no pleasing you leftists...

Yeah, when did they file those documents?



In 2015, CareerSource assisted in placing nearly 1,800 candidates in hospitality jobs in Palm Beach County. But Mar-A-Lago didn’t show much interest in using the free service.

Tom Veenstra, senior director of support services at CareerSource in Palm Beach County, told PolitiFact Florida that the first time his office received a request for helping finding workers was September 2015. (That was shortly after one of the first news reports, by Reuters, about Trump’s foreign hiring practice.)

Since that time, Mar-A-Lago used the office to hire just one person, a banquet server. "We called the HR director after the hire, and she said they were pleased with the hire and the candidates we sent them," Veenstra said. "There has been nothing else since then."

There are plenty of local applicants, said Greg Schell, an attorney in Palm Beach County who represents foreign workers. "The local job fairs for hotels and other hospitality jobs are overwhelmed with applicants," he said.


I wonder where they're looking for employees.
