Donald Trump pushed older, less attractive restaurant workers out of golf club, suit claims

Employees at the restaurant at Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes have claimed that young, attractive employees were scheduled to work when Donald Trump came to visit

Anne Donohue of San Pedro, a young hostess at Trump National Golf Club during her college years, said much of the angst stemmed from Trump’s insistence that only young, attractive women were working in the restaurant at the Rancho Palos Verdes club.

The manager just wanted to make sure we put on a really good face,” Donohue said Thursday. “The most attractive girls, in their early 20s or younger, were scheduled — and the people who weren’t going to be a problem. You were to look good, not bother him and smile.”

Those who were older, she said in a telephone interview, simply were not scheduled to work when Trump, their celebrity boss with a well-known penchant for beautiful young women, was coming to town.

Testimony culled from court documents this week claim that Trump insisted that only trim, young and attractive women be allowed to work in the restaurant — and that he wanted people fired who didn’t measure up when it came to youth and good looks.

The documents stem from a lawsuit filed over the lack of meal and rest breaks provided for employees at the venue. The bulk of the lawsuit was settled in 2013 when the golf course, while not admitting any wrongdoing, agreed to pay $475,000 to employees.

An attorney for the Trump organization called the allegations “meritless.”
But fallout from some of the employee testimony provided in court documents has pushed the complaints to the forefront of what has become a very tight presidential race.
