H-2B Workforce Coalition Pens Letter to DHS and DOL on the Expansion of Visa Programs

| May 06, 2022

Back in April, AAHOA and hundreds of other member in the the H-2B Workforce Coalition sent a letter to the heads of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Labor requesting the release of additional H-2B visas for the fiscal year in response to the program’s  unprecedented demand. 

“The H-2B Workforce Coalition is comprised of small and seasonal businesses across the country owned and operated by thousands of employers and their representatives from industries such as lodging, landscaping, seafood, restaurants, tourism, equine, forestry, mobile outdoor amusement, golf courses, and others. Our members are seasonal businesses that rely on the H-2B visa program to supplement their U.S. workforce during seasonal surge and peak business needs.”

AAHOA engages across multiple channels to address the ongoing labor shortage impacting our members. We will keep you apprised of our latest efforts.
