"H-2B visas are intended to help employers fill certain jobs (i.e. landscaping, seafood processing) when no U.S. workers are available. The number of visas is capped and they're generally first come, first served.
Employers told us uncertainty over whether the visa process will provide enough workers hampers their operations, including their ability to plan expansions.
The Homeland Security and Labor Departments have identified possible ways to reduce visa uncertainty, but haven’t determined what can be done under current law.
Our 5 recommendations include evaluating the options and proposing any needed legislative changes to Congress."
