Wade Shows Rethinks Routing, Learning Lessons From Pandemic

  After an unprecedented and difficult two years in the outdoor amusement business industry, Frank Zaitshik, President of Wade Shows, is rethinking his southern route, making some some changes as a result of lessons learned from the Pandemic . With a focus on preserving his staff members' energy and creating a desirable work environment, Zaitshik has been reevaluating what is most important when making business decisions. “Everybody has learned lessons in this pandemic and we're no different at Wade Shows,” he says. Like every other carnival owner in the industry, Zaitshik is currently struggling to find employees for the show: especially skilled, managerial level people.

Doing More With Less in the Carnival & Fair Industry: The 2021 Year in Review

Doing More With Less in the Carnival & Fair Industry: The 2021 Year in Review

A Carnival Warehouse Round Table Discussion

  Fairs are the great American tradition, spanning (almost) uninterrupted for generations.  A nearly extinct species in 2020, fairs, carnivals and concessionaires were determined to turn merely endangered into the pre-pandemic thriving mainstay of the popular entertainment ecosystem. For the mast part, that was accomplished. Events came back strong in 2021, often against many odds. Adhering to new safety protocols, overcoming labor shortages, supply disruptions and a host of other obstacles, it was a year of persistence, struggles and setbacks.But also one of triumph. With unprecedented enthusiasm, fairgoers warmly greeted the return of the midway, creating some of the most exiting fair nights ever experienced.

Department of Labor Announces Record Breaking Number of H-2B Visas Applied for

Cap Relief is Needed - Learn what you can do to help

  On Monday, the Department of Labor (DOL) announced that it received a record breaking 7,875 H-2B applications requesting 136,555 worker petitions during the January 1-3, 2022, filing period for the second half of the FY22 H-2B cap with a April 1 start date.  This is a 41% increase over last years total number of workers requested.  Currently, there are only 33,000 H-2B visas available for the second half of the cap, meaning, applicants have a 24% chance of receiving their workers absent of any form of cap relief.  Yesterday, USCIS held a lottery assigning H-2B applicants into groups A through G.  It is estimated that applicants in groups A and B will receive their workers under the original cap, and groups C, D, E, F, and G would be capped out unless some sort of cap relief is granted.For the first time ever, the administration released 20,000 supplemental visas to count toward the first half of the FY22 H-2B cap, bolstering the number of available visas from ...   [read more]
