US employers can bring in more foreign workers for seasonal jobs

ID-10065661U.S. employers will soon be able to bring in more low-skilled workers to the U.S. through the H-2B visa. The immigration program allows employers to hire foreign workforce to do temporary work, except for farming, during peak seasons. For instance, jobs could include ski lift operators during winter, pool waiters for a beach resort during the summer or landscaping workers during spring. Workers can fill these positions for up to ten months.

According to the H-2B Workforce Coalition, an alliance including business owners from various industries that support changes in the legislation which would allow employers to supplement their temporary foreign workforce, the program allows companies to meet consumer demand during peak seasons, whether it’s demand in tourism, construction or other services. So far, the program had a 66,000 workers cap per year. The new legislation, however, would almost double the number of foreign workers allowed to come into the U.S. through the H-2B program, based on estimations from the Departments of Labor and Homeland Security.
