Cato Institute H-2B user survey Email
Friday, October 20, 2017 12:00 AM


Attention business owners using the H-2B visa program:

We invite you to participate in a very important survey conducted by researchers at the Cato Institute in Washington, D.C. The purpose of the survey is to get the perspectives of users of the H-2B temporary worker program. 

Please click here to participate in the survey.

Since only H-2B users can provide this information, your participation is very important. This study will help the public understand what H-2B users undergo in order to obtain a legal workforce for seasonal positions in the United States. The survey should only take a few minutes.

Please rest assured that your responses will be kept anonymous and private, and your personally identifying information will not be disclosed unless you specifically request to be named in the report. This survey will give you the opportunity to share your perspective with people who shape H-2B policies in Washington, D.C. 

If you have any questions about the survey please contact the H-2B Workforce Coalition.

H-2B Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill 11-2-17 Email
Tuesday, October 17, 2017 12:00 AM


US Capitol

ALCC urges you to join fellow members of the H-2B Workforce Coalition and other concerned organizations in Washington, DC on November 2nd for an H-2B Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. It is crucial that Congress hears our collective voice. There is power in numbers, and the more of you who participate, the greater the effect will be. The support of our representatives will go a long way to helping us begin to close the huge gap in available labor for our industry.

If you've never participated in an advocacy event before, this is an excellent way to learn. ALCC can offer you information and coaching, and the H-2B Workforce Coalition will provide a briefing before you begin your day. You'll join colleagues experienced in advocacy, who can make introductions and guide you through meetings.
