Hmm…

September 12, 2017

From Politico.

“The Trump International Beach Resort, in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, has asked the government for permission to hire more temporary foreign workers to labor as housekeepers, according to records posted by the Department of Labor on Monday. The resort, which is near Miami, licenses President Donald Trump’s name but is owned by the International Resorts Management Group. It asked for permission to bring in 10 housekeepers, claiming no Americans wanted the jobs. The positions pay $10.64 an hour.”

    I am being critical of the anti-immigrant stance of Trump when it comes to the way he treats hard-working people who wish to come to this land. But when he thinks it in his best interest to have foreign workers for his businesses his tune changes. I also have long been a champion for living wages and think the salary given in the news story is very bad joke. I truly agree with your last sentence.

    When you say “Hmm…”, who exactly are you criticizing? Sure, Florida’s the “Sunshine State”, but workers need to make enough money to make working an incentive. Workers need a living wage, whether Florida or Wisconsin.

    Temp jobs–like I worked at Ron Johnson’s Pacur–are not the pathway to future success, for anybody. That may not be the Mad- or Mil-city narrative, but it’s true (i’ve lived in city and rural places, and the politics are much different between the two).

    Let’s help those that are faced with economic hardship: it helps our overall real economy.
