Doesn't really jibe with that Americans First policy, now does it?
It sounds good during election season, but he does not care about that now as he said

Now, wait a minute... y'all tell these people to go get jobs, and you won't hire them. Pretty hypocritical.

Here ya go...


"The visas are issued through a legal program that allows employers to temporarily hire foreign workers when there are no Americans available to do the work.
But hundreds of U.S. applicants either applied or were referred for the jobs, but only a handful were hired, the New York Times reported in February.
Since 2010, nearly 300 U.S. residents applied or were referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there, but only 17 were hired, according to The Times.

and remember the good ole days? In the early 1980's, trump seemed to have no problem with undocumented foreign workers...

"In a lawsuit filed in Manhattan Federal Court, members of House Wreckers Local 95 alleged that, to avoid paying union employees their pension and welfare benefits, Trump (and the contractor he used for the job, Kaszycki & Sons) brought in some 200 undocumented Polish workers to demolish the Bonwit Teller building that then occupied the site of the future Trump Tower."

It is the same kind of person that says fast food is meant to only be a stepping stone for people while also supporting automation and thus taking away those stepping stones

lmao...Do you know why so many might have been passed over? Just because they applied doesn't mean they should be hired. 300 in seven years. Not very many especially when they need more than that. So you both proved nothing. How many applied and were turned down this year at Mar A Lago which is what this post is about. If say, 10 applied and they ALL got the jobs, they would still need more. The point being, ALL tourist/seasonal employers do this. ALL of them do because not enough Americans apply for a temporary job that only lasts for a few months. It's been this way forever.
From the daily news article:
Quote:
Laurel Baker, the executive director of the Palm Beach Chamber of Commerce, said the practice was common at seasonal seaside properties.
“That’s something that appears to happen at all of the hotels or resorts,” Baker said. “The argument is that there are few locals available to do the work. This is more of a resort community.”

The way Free Markets work in Capitalism is you increase the pay until you get higher quality people then, but as it is, Big Business is showing itself more and more everyday of actually hating free market capitalism.

From Purchasing Politicians, to trade with Communist Countries where workers have no rights to trade with third world countries

They absolutely detest Free Market Capitalism in THIS country
