Guest-worker crisis worries landscaping industry

Posted By MNLA eNews, Tuesday, January 23, 2018

"The landscape companies I have met here are livid," she said. The object of their anger? Uncle Sam. In 2016, Congress failed to renew a provision of immigration law. The result was a significant reduction in the number of foreign temporary workers who are granted H-2B visas. Previously, workers who had earlier received a visa, which allows them to work up to 10 months per year in the United States, could return to their employers without coming under the annual limit. Youngblood said the action -- or inaction - effectively lowered the number of H-2B workers from about 350,000 to the annual cap of 66,000.
