Groups solicit comments on H2B program

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and an immigration advocacy group are asking landscape contractors for their feedback on the guest worker program.

August 9, 2010


WASHINGTON – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Labor, Immigration & Employee Benefits Division, and ImmigrationWorks USA have commissioned immigration economist Madeline Zavodny to write a report on the H-2B visa program. 
The groups plan to use data from the report to lobby Congress this fall in support of the guest worker program. 
They are interested in learning: 
  • How many workers with H2B visas have you employed in the last three years?
  • What types of jobs do H2B workers hold at your company?
  • What are the benefits of the H2B program for your company?
  • What, if any, problems have you had with the H2B program?
  • What do you think your firm would do if you were not able to hire any H2B workers?
You can e-mail your responses to Niki Littell at or fax them to 202-506-4642.
