Foreign seasonal workers for in US – Would nearly double

The seasonal worker provision, sought by a coalition of industry groups that include hotels,seasonal workers restaurants, ski and beach resorts, construction companies and seafood processors, allows U.S. companies to bring in far more than the 66,000 workers a year that have been permitted to obtain visas in the past. The H-2B visa program does not include farm workers.

The Departments of Labor and Homeland Security have estimated that changes in the way seasonal workers are calculated would nearly double the number of foreign workers coming into the U.S. under the H-2B program. Returning workers who received a visa in any of the three prior years will no longer be counted against the annual limit of 66,000.
