Donald Trump said - “I will be the greatest jobs president that God every created,"
Donald Trump said- "I will bring back our jobs from China, Mexico and other places. I will bring back jobs and our money."
Sounds good……Except when you pull back the curtain you see…….
Trump owns companies that have sought to import at least 1,100 foreign workers on temporary visas. Most of the applications were approved.
Nine companies majority-owned by Trump have sought to bring in foreign waitresses, cooks, vineyard workers and other laborers on temporary work-visa programs. (320,000,000 Americans and nobody is qualified to do these jobs for Mr. Trump)
The candidate's foreign talent hunt included applications for an assistant golf-course superintendent, an assistant hotel manager and a banquet manager. (320,000,000 Americans and nobody is qualified to do these jobs for Mr. Trump either)
Trump Model Management and Trump Management Group LLC, have sought visas for nearly 250 foreign fashion models. (320,000,000 Americans and Trump can’t find 250 American Models anywhere. He looked real hard.)
Trump’s presidential campaign and a lawyer for the businessman declined to comment. (Gee I wonder why…. Normally Trump loves to talk)
The H-2B program, which receives little government oversight, is used by companies in sectors ranging from hospitality to forestry to hire foreign workers for temporary jobs. Companies must prove that the jobs are seasonal - and that they tried and failed to hire Americans. (US companies have no problem proving they failed to hire Americans….US companies are experts at failing to hire Americans)
The Trump companies have sought at least 850 H-2B visa workers.
U.S. government watchdogs have criticized the H-2B and H-2A programs over the years for failing to protect foreign and American workers alike.
In 2003, the Labor Department Inspector General said: “Abuses of these programs may result in economic harm to American workers and businesses, exploitation of foreign workers, and security risks associated with aliens who are admitted to this country by fraudulent means.” (Everyone loses…..except the corporations)
This year, the Government Accountability Office published a report saying that workers in the country on H-2A and H-2B visas have experienced abuse, including being charged illegal recruiting fees, substandard housing and low pay.
