The H-2B Workforce Coalition will continue to seek a permanent solution to the seasonal labor crisis small businesses across the country face as national unemployment approaches 4 percent. We are grateful that fiscal year 2018 omnibus spending bill includes a path forward to help save the spring and summer for many seasonal businesses, their full-time (domestic) American workforce and the communities they serve. We urge Congress to promptly pass the measure and hope that upon President Trump's signature, the Department of Homeland Security will move swiftly to make these much-needed additional visas available. Without immediate action, more than 67 percent of seasonal positions will go unfulfilled, forcing businesses to turn away customers, lay off American workers whose jobs are supported by H-2B workers, and in some cases shut down their operations entirely.

The H-2B program relies on well-vetted, legal guest workers who come to the U.S. for seasonal employment and then return to their home country. These workers are not immigrants. They allow U.S. businesses to operate at a greater capacity, retain their full-time workers and contribute to their local economies. Seasonal workers help support many upstream and downstream jobs. Every H-2B worker is estimated to create and sustain 4.64 American jobs.

The H-2B program is essential to employers who cannot find local temporary workers to fill jobs in seafood processing, horse training, hospitality, amusement parks, forestry, landscaping, circuses, carnivals, food concessionaires, swimming pool maintenance, golf courses, stone quarries and other seasonal industries. These seasonal businesses need H-2B workers to supplement their American workforce.
