Trump Vineyards Is Hiring and It Helps If You’re Foreign!

Are you looking to break into the American wine industry? Do you live literally anywhere but the United States? You’re in luck. Eric Trump, son of President-elect Donald Trump, wants you to work for Trump Vineyards. He’s currently looking for six vineyard workers to join his team, according to a petition the Department of Labor posted, as part of a program that temporarily brings in seasonal workers. Trump Vineyards wants to bring these so-called guest workers from January through June and to pay them $10.72 an hour to work for 40 hours a week. The petition was filed shortly after a United Nations envoy suggested that the federal program opens the door to exploitation and even trafficking.

This is in keeping with the Trump business ethos: Since the Donald kicked off his presidential campaign by making racist remarks about Mexican immigrants, the Donald’s companies and those featuring his family name have asked for permission to hire a total of 263 foreign guest workers. Many of these individuals have worked as servers and house cleaners at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, where his unhinged former butler Anthony Senecal is the historian. Ironically but not surprisingly, an investigation by BuzzFeed News found that guest workers often get jobs over Americans.
