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 update

On September 15, the House today passed a $1.2 trillion fiscal year 2018 spending package, laying down a marker ahead of negotiations with the Senate and White House over a final spending deal in December. The 12-bill package (H.R. 3354) passed by a vote of 211-198. The bill includes H-2B regulatory reforms, but does not include a returning worker exemption or any other type of cap relief. Under a continuing resolution, Congress has until December 8 to negotiate a final fiscal 2018 spending package.

Please Help #SaveH2B: Harmful Amendments Defeated, H-2B Cap Relief Still Elusive

 Current Status of H-2B Efforts 

This is a very busy week in Congress and a crucial one in our fight to preserve the H-2B program. Earlier today, the Senate passed a Hurricane Harvey relief package that also raises the debt ceiling and continues existing government funding through December 8. The House is expected to pass the measure shortly. Under this legislation, the existing provisions of law related to H-2B wage surveys, staggered crossing for seafood workers, prohibitions on DOL enforcement of the H-2B corresponding employment and ¾ guarantee regulatory requirements and a 10-month season will be continued through December 8, but the Homeland Security Secretary’s authority to increase H-2B visas is still set to expire on October 1.
