Eric Trump's Winery Just Begged The Labor Dept. For Migrant Workers


The Presidentís son Eric Trump filed a petition with the Department of Labor to hire 23 additional foreign guest workers to ďtake Americansí jobsĒ at his Virginia winery. Eric Trumpís demand comes in addition to a December request for only six workers for the jobs which will pay $11.27 per hour, but that they claim that no American wants.

Eric Trump is seeking to hire workers beginning in April and keeping them employed all the way through October of this year. The petition was filed on February 9th, while his fatherís Muslim ban was still being decided in the courts for discriminating against legal, visa holding immigrants. Buzzfeed reports:

The Trump Winery, also known as Trump Vineyard Estates, LLC, is asking to bring in 23 workers this spring to plant and harvest grapes. The workers are being sought under the federal H-2 visa program, which permits American employers to hire foreign laborers under temporary work visas as long as no qualified U.S. workers want the jobs. The job on the 1,300-acre estate could run through late October.
