Worker Bill Roils the Au Pair World

"The email sent ripples of fear among upscale parents: Au pair programs are in danger of ending, a possible victim of legislation now moving through Congress.  The Senate immigration bill gives a hand to U.S. employers of foreign software developers, cruise-ship repairers and ski instructors.  But au pair services are warning their customers that the bill could also jack up the price of bringing temporary child-care workers into the country and do other harm to the programs." - Kristina Peterson, WSJ, May 24, 2013.
