Trump Organization in Scotland
The family of the US president, Donald Trump, is looking for coronavirus relief money from the government of the UK in order to cover the wages of the staff at Trump’s loss-making gold courses.
The Trump Organization, though it is owned by the US president, is run by his two eldest sons named Eric and Donald Trump Jr. The Trump organization is now planning to leave bagpipers, bartenders and some other workers at their resorts located in Scotland. Both of the resorts named – Trump International Golf Links and Trump Turnberry are closed when the lockdown was declared on the previous month. They are situated at Aberdeenshire and Ayrshire, respectively.
If the staffs are unable to work due to the pandemic, the UK government, under the job holding scheme, pays 80% of the staff wages to £2,500 a month. Eric Trump, one of the eldest sons, said that any application for the government cash was only about ensuring safety to the people as well as their families who would not work in their work.
He said that, like thousands of businesses across the globe, they had been imposed by the government order to close their leisure and hospitality facilities temporarily. He also said that they were doing all that they could do to hold and support their staff.
Two resorts in Scotland
The executive vice president of the Aberdeenshire resort, Sarah Malone, delivered a similar statement. She said that they were not so different from other businesses, including several media companies. That had nothing to do with Mr. President and didn’t benefit his business.
On the other hand, the Turnberry resort hasn’t commented on the plan for its staff, but a local councillor said that staff had told him about the plans to access the pattern.
