It's a stumper, all right. How does one make a job more attractive? What is it, when all is said and done, that incentivizes people to apply for jobs in the first place?

i worked seasonal positions for fourteen years, in management, i have a good idea of what i speak about. the places i worked got people from around the world, including eastern europe, south africa, jamaica, and indonesia. and they were all paid the same as people from the US, so pay scale isnt the issue here.

the problem is that if you dont work as a migratory worker, and go from seasonal position to seasonal position, you have trouble finding work in the off season because most employers dont want to hire temporary workers, train them, only to have them leave when the new season arrives.

yea bring it-
Tom Veenstra, a senior director at Palm Beach’s career service center told Buzzfeed that his agency has a database of 1,327 Palm Beach County residents interested in server, cook and chef positions.
Veenstra said his state-chartered agency is helping a number of local hotels fill 856 open positions for the season, but Mar-A-Lago hadn’t reached out for help.
Trump has been bringing in guest workers for years and since launching his presidential campaign, his companies have applied for and been given permission to hire at least 149 foreign guest workers, in addition to the 78 visa for which he’s just applied, according to the report.

He said he would create more jobs. He never said they would be for Americans.

You pick and choose which American jobs are more important and which ones can have their jobs replaced by a foreign worker who comes into the US with the specific intent to work (instead of giving that job to an American)?

The 69 US workers in Florida wouldn't even need taxpayers to subsidize their wages yet the 700 Indiana workers at Carrier needed Indiana taxpayers to subsidize their wages.

Double standard?



Obama is president.


He has done nothing in eight to keep or expand employment opportunities for ordinary Americans.




Trump is not president.


He is a businessman who takes advantage of cheap and available workers just like everyone else.


The problem isn't that Trump, one employer, can employ H1-b visa workers.


The problem is everyone can.


The issue will be resolved when no one can.

Default Mar-a-Lago petitions to hire more foreign workers

DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO

In another instance of hypocrisy, Donald J Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, is looking to hire an additional 70 foreign workers. The Trump National Golf Course in Jupiter, Fla has also followed suit seeking more foreign workers.

As with the case with made in America (Many Trump businesses use buy goods from outside nations), these actions are just another example of the hollow words of Trump.

Putting "America first" again.

Given Trump Org chose to double the membership fee once Trump was elected along with charges for rooms/ suites, dining, spa and so on, one would think Trump Org could raise wages and attract/ retain US workers.

You know... Set the right tone at the top and all that.

The H2B Visa program requires employers to do a minimum of US recruiting. An as posted as a legal notice in the back of a local paper qualifies. In contrast, Trump Org must pay foreign recruitments fees, transportation and housing for foreign workers which sounds a tad bit like indentured servitude.

The H2 B Visa allows a foreign worker to live and work in the US for 3 years and is renewable.
