Tramp Vineyard Applies To Labor Department To Hire Foreign Workers


Recommended Posts

It’s a “classic conflict of interest,” a federal ethics expert says

 

 

ust days after President-elect Donald Trump leaned on an Indiana company not to ship American jobs to Mexico, the Trump vineyard in Virginia asked the Labor Department for permission to hire foreign workers.

Trump Vineyard Estates LLC filed an application with the department on Dec. 2 seeking six H2 visas that would allow the company to hire foreign workers for seasonal jobs.

If the visas are approved, the company would hire the workers to prune grapevines. It would pay them $10.72 an hour to work a 40-hour week from Monday through Saturday with unpaid lunch breaks, according to the application, which Buzzfeed first reported. The work would begin on Jan. 31 — 11 days after Trump’s inauguration. It would end on June 30.

A Trump Winery supervisor signed the request for the company, which is a “registered trade name of Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing LLC, which is not owned, managed or affiliated with Donald J. Trump, The Trump Organization or any of their affiliates,” according to the firm’s website. News outlets had previously reported that the New York businessman had given the winery operation to his second eldest son in 2012.

But the president-elect boasted of the winery earlier this year at a campaign event featuring bottles of Trump Wine, saying: “I own it 100 percent, no mortgage, no debt.”

The request for the visas was actually issued by Trump Vineyard Estates LLC, where the winery is located. Donald Trump reported in May 2016 campaign financial disclosure documents that he was the president of the company, according to The Washington Post. He revealed in a 2015 campaign financial disclosure that the company had earned him $150,000 to $1.1 million, Politico reported at the time.

A federal ethics expert noted the “classic conflict of interest” when the president of a company applying for such visas will soon be head of the U.S. government and in charge of the Labor Department deciding on those visas.

“This is a powerful example of why Donald Trump needs to make a definitive break, not just with his operational interests but his ownership interests, by appointing an independent trustee to liquidate all that,” Norm Eisen of the Brooking Institute, who served as chief White House ethics lawyer for President Obama from 2009 to 2011, told The Post.

Eric Trump has his own conflicts of interest as owner, operator and president of Trump Winery. He is serving on his father’s transition team and could play a role in the incoming administration.

And Eric Trump has also decried the loss of jobs to foreigners.

CNN reported in July that Trump companies have employed at least 1,256 foreign workers — most from Romania and South Africa — in the past 15 years. The companies applied to hire 263 foreign workers even after Trump launched his campaign for president in which he railed against the loss of U.S. jobs to foreign workers, Buzzfeed reported.

When asked during his campaign to explain the apparent discrepancy, Trump responded: “It’s almost impossible to find help,” according to CNNMoney.

Labor Department records show it granted about 8,000 of 8,800 temporary agricultural worker visa requests this year, the Post said.

The Trump vineyard applied for 19 temporary visas for foreign workers each year in 2014, 2015 and in 2016, before the most recent request, federal records reveal.

You should focus your efforts someplace where it MIGHT do some good.

 

Like down in your neck of the woods where Disney is FIRING people left and right- AMERICAN CITIZENS- so they can hire "cheap foreign labor" and FORCING the people that are LOSING their jobs to train these H2 visa workers. THOUSANDS of them.

 

Oh, but wait. Disney is a HUGE supporter of demorrhoids.

 

Never mind.

Lets not forget, for the past 25 years Tramp has been applying to import foreigners to work at Mar Largo in Florida. Even when Florida unemployment was 10%, saying get this, he could not find workers in florida as if there is not tons of experienced hotel/golf and restaurant workers...

You should be happy benson you love illegals more than american citizens.

 

Trump is a smart businessman, he will do whatever in the hell he wants, he will kick ass at everything he does whether YOU like it or not, and if you DON'T like it, why don't you soothe yourself with a nice steaming shit sandwich.

 

Ivanka is no different. She will smoke every mfer who gets in her way, she will make expensive jewelry with $5/week Chinese labor, and she will be your first female president after your Daddy gets through his eight glorious years. And you will love and adore her as much as you will your Daddy Trump.

IF I were a demorrhoid, I would be worried more about how to win a damn election in the next 20-30 years.

 

But they are easily manipulated FOOLS, so let them stew.

 

You do have to admit, that if THIS is all they got, that wilderness trek is going to be a very longgggggggg one.

Oh....here's six-shooter....the """Independent"""

 

Tell us benson, how does it feel to be a member of the regional party of LOSERS???

I despise his 2 asshole sons and daughter as much as I do the Tramp

 

 

 

my hate matches the same hate I had for cheney and rove...which is = to the hate I have for Foxaganda and gop hate radio

 

 

ALL THAT HATE is why you MORONS will wander in political obscurity for 20-30 years!!

 

Until your HATERS are killed off or die, you will NEVER win another election.

 

Work on your HATE and end it and see how much you might get some voters back. Until then, just keep on hatin' and see how many more you LOSE!!

 

It's funny as hell watching the Party of Hate, Racism, and Division just doing the same INSANITY over and over and expecting to win something.

 

REGIONAL PARTY OF demorrhoid MORONS!!!
