Prevailing Wage Fight Delays H-2B Visas

"From Cape Cod innkeepers to the seafood industry in Louisiana, employers who depend on seasonal foreign workers have scrambled to fill positions this year because of wrangling in Washington over how much these workers should be paid.  At issue is a guest worker program, known as H-2B, which allows employers to hire foreigners for seasonal nonagricultural jobs when they can't find enough U.S. workers." - Pamela Prah, Stateline, July 17, 2013.
