Tell Congress to Support Guest Workers to Alleviate Worker Shortages

The construction industry is experiencing record economic activity with low unemployment and little expectation that the current domestic workforce can alone meet employment demand. Currently, our nation's immigration system provides the high-tech sector, agricultural businesses, and seasonal employers with options for guest workers. It does not for the construction industry.

Contact your members of Congress and tell them to support “The Workforce for an Expanding Economy Act,” which would allow contractors to hire year-round construction guest workers while protecting American jobs and reducing incentives for individuals to enter the country illegally.
