Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago applies for 40 additional foreign hires

The Palm Beach Post in South Florida is reporting that the Donald Trump Foundation in Palm Beach County, Florida donated $706,000 to charities since 2008-and nearly all of the donations went to charities that hosted expensive fundraisers at President Trump's private Mar-a-Lago resort.

The posts appeared Thursday on the Department of Labor website, showing the Florida club is searching for 21 cooks and 40 waiters and waitresses.

The president is known to speak about the "Buy American, Hire American" policy on several occasions and has often asked businesses to opt for usa workers.

The President's infamous golf resort, Mar-a-Lago, recently filed requests to hire 61 foreign workers.

In order to obtain H-2B visas, employers are required to prove there aren't enough USA workers who are "able, willing, qualified and available" to do the work.

The Post found a pattern that showed $25,000 donations were typically given to a charity by the Trump Foundation after an event was relocated to Mar-a-Lago from a different venue. This request comes just over a year after Trump signed his "Buy American and Hire American" executive order.

The Journal highlights two companies that it says engages in this practice. Google indicated that the practice was not against its policies.

These workers will be taken onboard from October until May and the wages have been set at $12.68 per hour for the servers and $13.31 for the cooks, reported Buzzfeed News.

The seasonal workers would be required to return to their home country once their H-2B visas expire.

The Mar-a-Lago Club has repeatedly used foreign workers in the past.

In the midst of President Trump's "Made in America Week" at the White House over a year ago, Trump had said, "We believe jobs must be offered to American workers first".

In April 2017, Trump signed the "Buy American and Hire American Executive Order", which sought to boost job opportunities for USA workers by "rigorously enforcing and administering our immigration laws".

Nonprofit placement agency CareerSource Palm Beach County told The Palm Beach Post that there were many Americans eager to work at Mar-a-Lago, and that they agency has a database last November of 5,136 qualified candidates for "various hospitality positions".
