TSSA condemns "despicable billionaire" Trump for "pickpocketing" his workers

16 April 2019

TSSA has today condemned US President Donald Trump for paying staff at his Turnberry hotel below the legal minimum and withholding overtime pay.

TSSA General Secretary, Manuel Cortes, said, “This despicable billionaire’s greed knows no bounds. Not content with robbing pensioners of their free travel allowance, he is now pickpocketing his current workforce.

“Trump likes to boast of his connections with Scotland, but the truth is he treats Scottish workers abominably with his employees having to work 170 hours of overtime before they can be paid for it.

“He is a disgrace. Theresa May should revoke his invitation for a state visit.”

TSSA has previously protested against Trump after the £200-a-night Turnberry hotel withdrew free and reduced travel rights for 4 retired members of staff.
