    Huffington Post: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Obtains Visas For 70 Foreign Workers

    Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort has obtained 70 new visas -- 20 foreign cooks, 35 waiters and 15 maids and housekeepers for the 2017-18 winter in Florida season. Their hourly wages range from $10.33 for cleaners to $13.34 for cooks. The temporary visas are for the period October 2017 to the end of May 2018.

    I guess Trump just couldn't find good help in Florida or the rest of the United States to fill these jobs. Nice to have connections in the Department of Labor to approve these H-2B visas.

    I see the opportunity for some clandestine organization to infiltrate a Trump establishment to find out what the wages and working conditions really are. The HuffPost article doesn't indicate the racial makeup of the people the Trump organization hired, and I'd be interested to know or find out what it is. And, wouldn't foreign hires fall under the state department's jurisdiction?
