Donald Trump's Virginia winery seeks foreign workers for seasonal jobs
Recent filings with the U.S. Department of Labor show that Donald Trump’s winery in Charlottesville, Virginia has taken steps to bring in foreign workers to do seasonal jobs. The jobs reportedly pay $10.72 an hour and the season is expected to run from the end of January through the end of June.
Early in Trump’s campaign, critics attacked the president-elect’s businesses for importing cheaper foreign labor despite his pledge to be the “greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
According to a CNN analysis of Labor Department filings, Trump’s companies have requested 190 foreign visa workers since June 2015, the month Trump announced his candidacy.
Legal experts warned the Washington Post’s Patricia Sullivan that the president-elect is creating a major conflict of interest by applying for special temporary visas for foreign workers. Trump, whose son Eric operates the Virginia vineyard, is set to run the federal government, which decides whether to grant H2 visas.
