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

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

    Jobs
    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.

    Under the H-2B program, employers must first try to hire American workers — or legal immigrants already in the United States — at reasonable wages for their openings. If they can't find qualified US workers, then employers can ask the Department of Labor for permission to hire foreign guest workers on H-2B visas. Documents show that hiring managers at the Trump establishments made the minimum efforts required by law to recruit US workers.




    Is this more of that work that Americans won't do?

    Is Trump now doing too much for immigrants?

    I'm also guessing that The Donald didn't actually sit in on the interviews.

    But I thought he was going to raise wages for working class Americans. What a missed opportunity. Instead he went for the cheapest labor he could find after a token attempt to hire US workers.

    Good business managers do what is best overall for the company, not what others think it should do. But hobby you wouldn't grasp that! Head in the sand to how and what businesses have to do to compete and remain profitable. Why so many small businesses in places where min wages went up folded or shut down because the profit was gone. Ho Hum but we got the wage increase and lost jobs!!! But the wage increase is more important! Like continuing to fertilize a crop after it was destroyed by hail! Makes you feel good but it is a waste of resources!!!

    If I was in his position, I would have been willing to take a big financial loss in order to send a loud and clear message and to back up my words. Instead, Trump goes full hypocrite.

    If his own business people will not follow his plea for companies to raise wages, why should any other business? Trump does not know the first thing about leadership. But you are so blinded by the light you will never admit that.

    You are really removing all doubt as of late!!!! Might serve you to stay on script from the DNC because when you freelance nobody has any doubts about your intelligence and reasoning! Trump interferes by commenting your ilk cries conflict, Trump doesn't you cry!!!! Trump has always pushed market value. But lack of comprehension has you not getting or understanding this!

    Worring what the liberals will say has never stopped him from anything else so that is a hollow argument. So how does Trump demonstrate leadership?

    Yes but it conflicts with your liberal agenda and limited intelligence as demonstrated with your posts making claims that are not true.
