US Capitol

Can't Make it To DC on November 2? Support the effort from Colorado

Please do the following on November 2:

1. Call your two Senators and your Representative. If you do not know their direct numbers, you can reach them through the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 225-3121. Once connected to the office, ask to speak to the person to handles H-2B issues and tell him or her how important the H-2B program is to you. Ask them to:
        • Re-instate the H-2B returning worker for the remainder of fiscal year 2017 and for fiscal year 2018.
        • Ask your Senators to cosponsor S. 792, the bipartisan “Save our Small and Seasonal Businesses Act.”
        • Ask your Representative to cosponsor HR 2004, the “Strengthen Employment and Seasonal Opportunities Now (SEASON) Act.”
        • If your elected officials have sponsored H-2B legislation, written letters in support of the program, or assisted you with H-2B processing issues, say “thank you” and encourage them to keep up the fight.
2. Tweet about the need to pass H-2B cap relief. Encourage Congress to Act by using #saveH2B and directing tweets at your elected officials. Get sample tweets from ALCC at @coloradogreennow.
3. Encourage your employees, co-workers, customers and other local businesses to call and tweet their local officials. 
Please Respond to Cato's H-2B Survey By November 1

Finally, if you have not done so, please take a few minutes to complete the H-2B Survey being conducted by the Cato Institute before November 1. This survey will give you the opportunity to share your perspective with people who shape H-2B policies in Washington, D.C. 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. Please click here to participate in the survey.

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.

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 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.
