Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club Requests to Hire 70 Foreign Workers During Administration’s ‘Made in America’ Week

Trump‘s Mar-a-Lago Club has requested approval to hire a total of 70 foreign employees to staff the Palm Beach, Florida, estate starting in October – a move that, coincidentally, comes during the president’s Made In America Week, the Washington Post and Buzzfeed News have reported.

According to three requests posted to the Department of Labor’s Public Job Registry, Mar-A-Lago is seeking to hire 15 housekeepers, 35 waiters and 20 cooks through H-2B visas.

The H-2B visas would allow the foreign workers to staff the for-profit club – which Trump has visited 25 times since beginning his presidency – from this October until May 2018. Trump’s Jupiter, Florida, golf club made a similar request for six cooks.

H-2B visas are specifically for foreign workers that will fill temporary jobs in the U.S. in fields including tourism and construction, among other things, the Post reported. Just earlier this week, the administration said it was expanding the H-2B program to offer an additional 15,000 visas to foreign workers, reported The Hill.

A Department of Labor spokesman told the outlet that Mar-a-Lago and Trump’s Jupiter golf club are required to attempt to fill the positions with American workers first, before they can ask the Department of Homeland Security to issue visas for foreign workers who want the roles.

The week – which is the first of several upcoming themed weeks – kicked off on Monday, and has included a roundtable discussion profiling 20 companies that manufacture their products in the U.S.

The White House also hosted a American Product Showcase, which included U.S. companies from all 50 states.

GMB Union Offers Whistleblowing Helpline for Asos Workers

ON CALL: Britain’s GMB union is revealing the darker side of Black Friday weekend, offering Asos employees access to a 24-hour, confidential hotline if they’re feeling exploited during the busy sales period.
GMB, which has in the past raised issues with Asos regarding working conditions, is encouraging employees of the British online fashion retailer to report any problems or poor work practices. The union, which issued a statement today, has said calls will be anonymous and whistleblowers protected.
The retailer is taking part in Black Friday discounting, offering up to 20 percent off of its apparel, accessories and shoes.
“Asos…appears to have forgotten that as an employer their first responsibilities are delivering a safe, decent workplace and fair terms and conditions for their own workers,”said Neil Derrick, regional secretary of GMB.
“No Friday should be a Black Friday for workers — and too many Asos workers have reported dark days when employed by the company. We encourage anyone with concerns to call. They will be able to speak in their own time and in the strictest of confidence.”

Della Valle Blasts Workers’ Strike

Italian media turned their attention on Tod’s chief Diego Della Valle on Saturday as the entrepreneur reacted to the closure of the Colosseum a day earlier due to an employees’ assembly that created havoc among tourists waiting outside the monument.
“People that may be in the right and have their reasons [to protest], when they are engaged in matters that are related to the reputation of the country, should think twice [about the consequences],” said Della Valle on national television.  The Tod’s group has sponsored the restoration of the Colosseum with a donation of 25 million euros, or $ 28.5 million at current exchange.
Separately, Tod’s has also financed a new recreational center for Save the Children in a suburb of Naples. According to daily Corriere della Sera, this is part of the “Noi Italiani”  project that Della Valle has set in motion. As reported, the entrepreneur has trademarked  the logo of his association  (“We Italians”), which is meant to  focus on solving practical problems in areas ranging from  security and work to education and health.
