Interesting article about two immigrant women from Central America who worked at Trump's property. It tells how they arrived to the U.S., how they got jobs, and whether or not Trump knew of their illegal status.

Agent Orange a gigantic raging hypocrite?

Say it isn't so? :rw)

"Tarriff man" who swore he would correct the U.S. trade imbalance, now has one of the biggest trade deficits, ever. :roll:

Netflix did a show which might provide a frame for telling Trump's story. It's called Norsemen.

Yes, one of them said her starting pay was over 12 dollars an hour. He tipped generously too when he did inspections for dust and was pleased with their work 50 to 100 dollar bills.

The article didnt go into specifics regarding taxation.

In the "color me unsurprised" category ... I'm sure the other employees were inspired by the boss.

Undocumented Workers At Trump Golf Club Ridiculed By Staff As ‘Donkeys’ And ‘Dogs’
https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/undo ... eaking-out

NEW YORK (AP) — A Guatemalan living in the U.S. illegally who says she faced abusive working conditions as a maid at Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf club doesn’t regret speaking out, even though she might lose her job and be deported.

Victorina Morales told The Associated Press in an interview Friday that she can’t go back to Guatemala because her family has received death threats, but that she had to stand up for other workers without legal documents at the club who have been ridiculed by a supervisor as “donkeys” and “dogs.”

[snip]

Morales, who said she has not been told definitively that she’s been fired, said that at least a dozen other workers at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster did not have legal documentation.

Morales and another cleaning woman at the club, Sandra Diaz, said that they used phony Social Security and permanent residency documents to get hired, their supervisors knew it and that many employees there also lack legal documents. They both said they worked at Trump’s house at the club cleaning his clothes and making his bed and were angered by his remarks describing immigrants in the U.S. illegally as violent.

They said his comments may have encouraged what they describe as rampant verbal abuse at the resort.

“The president says that in the places he owns he does not hire any undocumented workers. …It is a lie,” said Diaz, 46, a native of Costa Rica who worked at the club in 2010 to 2013.

[snip]

Morales said that a supervisor at the club helped her get phony working papers. She said another supervisor pushed her against a wall three times, told her to stop speaking Spanish and threatened her with deportation if she complained.

[snip]

Diaz said she once witnessed a manager pull the hair of a worker without legal papers.

[snip]

The Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster is not on a list of employers that have registered to use E-Verify.

[snip][end]

I've always said employers like Trump hire the undocumented because they can get away with underpaying them and treating them like crap, since as non-citizens they are not protected by U.S. labor regulations.

They are very brave women. I hope they find security, if not working for dumb dumb, at least somewhere where they can seek citizenship.
