Trump Model Management is under intense scrutiny over possible labor-law violations
A former Trump model is speaking out, claiming the billionaire business man’s modeling agency “lured her” to New York at the age of 17, promising to make her rich, but instead treated her “like a slave.”
According to legal documents obtained by TheWrap, the agency deducted 80 percent of her earnings for expenses and fees and only booked 21 shoots for her during the three years she was with the company. Under the terms of her visa, Palmer could not work anywhere else.
The lawsuit is gaining attention more than two years after it was filed after Trump voiced his opposition while on the campaign trail to the practice by American companies of using foreign workers brought to the U.S. through the controversial H1-B visa program. (Trump reversed his position on the matter in a recent debate.)
