Trump violates another Federal Law: Typical Con

This is how Trump plans to make America Great Again!!



Trump violates federal labor law, refuses to negotiate with his Vegas workers’ union




The National Labor Relations Board ruling against Trump comes in the final days of the presidential election.

As Donald Trump makes his final pitch to U.S. voters — calling himself “financially brave” and promising “law and order, balanced with justice and fairness” — he faces new charges that he violated the federal labor rights of his own employees.

The National Labor Relations Board ruled Wednesday night that Trump has been illegally refusing to bargain with the 500-odd employees at the Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas. They officially unionized earlier this year.

“We find that the Respondent’s conduct constitutes an unlawful failure and refusal to recognize and bargain with the Union,” the NLRB wrote.

The board ordered Trump to immediately recognized the workers’ union and begin bargaining a contract with them, and said he must post notices in the hotel itself admitting the violation.

“Mr. Trump should accept the federal government’s order to negotiate and treat his workers with respect,” said Geoconda Arguello-Kline, the Secretary-Treasurer of union that represents the workers. “Mr. Trump is breaking federal law and Trump Hotel Las Vegas is operating illegally.”

“Mr. Trump is breaking federal law and Trump Hotel Las Vegas is operating illegally.”

Trump has fought his Vegas’ workers union every step of the way for the last two years.

The workers at the Trump International Hotel — more than 80 percent of whom are immigrants and more than 50 percent of whom are women — make $3 an hour less than most Las Vegas hotel employees. Another housekeeper, Maria Jaramillo, told ThinkProgress in February that the poor benefits package also pushed them to unionize.

“He says he wants to make America great,” Olvera told ThinkProgress in Spanish. “Well, he should start here in his own house, his own business.”
