Default Why is Trump trying to hire 40 foreign workers @ $12.50 / hr

Even though they are seasonal couldn't he just hire 40 UFlorida students via an externship?

At $12.50 an hour these folks aren't even highly skilled.

if they have a work visa or are citizens then i dont see a problem. i guess you have never used labor workers before or the company you work for just hires Texas only residents. SMFH

Wally World had some Great Value Sweet Jay chum on clearance and I'm using vermin for bait so let me see what I'll come up with.

Probably just Trump change.

And this post folks is how fake news is made.
The winery that sought to employ foreign workers is owned and operated by Eric Trump, not the president. This request was filed a long time ago and no mention of nationality of the workers.

I have not heard about this.....
Seems like I don’t care at all, I am just walking around smiling, thinking what the Supreme Court will look like after Trumps second term.

Aren't/weren't burger flippers whining about wanting $15/hr or they were going to strike?? Does any one really believe that agriculture work is at the top of the desirable list for people that can legally be employed??

The only issue I see is that there are able bodied Americans sucking on the welfare tit that should be made to get a job before foreign workers are considered to fill the labor demand.

Hunger is a hell of a motivator. Let these "Americans that don't want these jobs" starve for a couple of days and watch them picking lettuce by the end of the week with a smile on there face.

I thought the link would read this:

I seriously doubt you could get 40 college students to do that job, assuming they were trained and qualified.

Here's an article you should like. Instead of doing things the legal way like President Trump. Nancy Pelosi hires illegal aliens.

Not unusual. I'm just glad no one quoted him since he's on my Ignore List.

I'm beginning to think he and Vermin93 don't care much for "Our President".

The majority of the media if not all are biased in their reporting. With the larger organizations tending by far to be more biased. The only things that I see different from the recent past is that some of the media organizations are shamelessly in bed with a political party and don't even bother to hide it. The other obvious issue is that there are more biased media outlets "reporting in favor" of one side which greatly skews the perspective of a lot of peeps(mindless ones) that can't seem to form an opinion for themselves.

This isn't new, Mar a Lago has used this practice since the 90's but what's always been questioned (locally) is why. X employee's have stated that management wants half the staff as Caucasian which in South Florida can be challenging. As most know S. Florida can be like a different country with all the ppl of color even caucasian have permanent tans.
