Protesters are generally poor and unsuccessful people with little impact on anything.  Wegman's must be getting a good laugh.

Trump wines sold out at Richmond-area Wegmans stores; mostly sold out at its 8 other stores in Virginia

But wait---Shouldn't that make you happy? And these would be legal foreign workers correct?

So I responded to one of your posts with a question.

You answered with a question.

 

How does it make you feel?

I answered your question.

 

Nobody that I have seen here has had a problem with LEGAL immigrants working here. I work with legal immigrants every day, mostly from Central America. It doesn't bother me.

You never answered my question but claimed a "weird tangent", which you brought up, was involved. So I repeat my questions.

Shouldn't that make you happy? And these would be legal foreign workers correct?

Also, do you plan to support the boycott and possibly cost these poor legal immigrants their chance at a better life here or are you going to possibly help them and buy Trump wines?

 

Let me see, will the response, if there is one, be a question to answer questions or some obtuse deflection about the wines not being available where you are ( they can be ordered online http://www.trumpwinery.com/ )

Again, very weird tangent. It makes you seem desperate to avoid the point.

 

Trump claimed to be bringing back American jobs, but the winery he slapped his name on and gifted to his own flesh and blood is begging the govt to hire more foreign workers.

 

It adds to the great healing pile of things that make a sham of his promises.

 

Simple enough?

I remember when the boycott of Chic-fil-A brought the corporation to its knees! You go boycotters!

Once again petitioning the Government is not "begging".

 

I am not avoiding anything. I answered your question. It doesn't bother me . They would be legal workers. If Americans want to apply they could and that many less visas would be needed.

 

Again you did not answer any of the questions presented. But answered with a question.

I think they're kinda bland. Just me I suppose. I seldom eat fast food. I guess Subway would be my first choice.

I agree. I've never been a fan. Subway would probably be my choice of the two.

Subway is a great choice.  The grilled chicken sandwich at ChickFilet isn't bad.  My favorite is the tuna burger from Larkburger, lettuce wrapped with the wasabi-ginger sauce.

That does sound good. I've never seen Larkurger. Is that in the Baltimore metro area?

No idea whether Larkburger is in Bmore.  But if you find one, get the tuna rare.  Sushi sandwich.  

 

And it is tuna steak, not ground.

I would also like to add that the Trump company is following the law by petitioning for the visa workers. Would you prefer they hire illegal aliens?

 

Not to mention that, according to your link, the jobs are being paid at $11.27 which is considerably above the Virginia required minimum wage of  $7.25 which matches the Federal Minimum wage(at $11.27 that's roughly somewhere around 60% above minimum wage).

Looks like they are exclusive to Colorado.
