POLITICS, PANDEMIC & SEASONAL EMPLOYERS: THE CURRENT STATE OF PLAY FOR THE H-2 VISA PROGRAMS
Business owners and managers know it’s hard enough to find good help, but when you can’t find any help, running your business can be nearly impossible. If your business suffers due to a lack of local labor, Action Visa Assistance may be able to help, so you can do what you do best: run your business. Information about the H2 Temporary Labor Programs is free.
The H-2 programs have been a controversial topic for years. Opponents of the programs accuse employers of not wanting to pay US workers a decent wage, and of preferring to hire foreign workers instead. As a result, a largely uninformed public only hears that jobs are going to foreign, not US workers. There are many in the US Department of Labor and in Congress who echo those same opinions.
Seasonal employers are caught in the middle, arguing that if they were able to hire enough local workers, they wouldn’t have to depend on foreign visas to fill temporary, entry level, non-skilled jobs.
