The good thing about video footage of Trump being a heartless cretin is that everyone can see it and agree on it. Heck, his “p*ssy grabber” made even his Republican supporters pissed off, which is no easy task. It can be used to organize against him, as this viral guide to resisting Trump illustrates perfectly.
But now US Uncut has dug up some footage. As they report, in a Vice on HBO segment that aired earlier this year, a reporter is shown following a bus of workers employed by a subcontractor hired by the Trump Organization to build the Trump golf course in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In his interviews with the migrant workers, reporter Ben Anderson discovered that the workers are brought in from Pakistan and offered $3/hour, to work eight-hour shifts with two hours of overtime. Disgusting! And it gets worse. Because upon arrival, the Trump golf course subcontractor only paid the migrant workers $1.50 an hour, confiscated workers’ passports so they couldn’t leave, and housed them in dangerously unsanitary and crowded dormitories with bathrooms that “didn’t look fit for human beings,” according to Anderson.
“If you can have anything, all you would want is to be promised 10 dirhams per hour (currency of UAE), that’s three dollars roughly, instead of the five dirhams — one and a half dollars — that you are being paid. That’s all you’d ask for?” Anderson asked a group of migrant workers. “Yes,” they all replied, in unison.
Are you going to let this kind of monstrous individual be our president unimpeded? Or are you going to do your part to resist? If you’re willing to stop him, join the thousands who have made this grassroots call to action their New Years Resolution!
