H-2B Seasonal Work Program used by Carnivals May Jeopardize Fairs
Rides 4U - New & Used Rides RIDE HELP WANTED
The House Appropriations Committee is scheduled to consider the FY 22 Department of Labor Appropriations bill on Thursday, July 15.  The bill contains the language (in Sections 116, 117, and 118) supported by organized labor that would devastate the H-2B program and make it impossible for many employers to use the program – which likely includes your fair's carnival company and/or food vendors! This language would effectively kill the H-2B program.  The draft bill would:
 
  • Prohibit industries from using the H-2B program if they experienced unemployment in ANY of the previous 12 months over 10% (a majority of H-2B industries would be ineligible especially considering unemployment rates and COVID-19 over the past 12 months);

  • Prohibit construction industries from using the program even in seasonal locations or occupations;

  • Increase the baseline for wages to at least 150% of the federal or state minimum wage, whichever is higher;

  • Require wage compliance with a collective bargaining agreement for your industry in your area, even if you are not a party to the agreement;

  • Ban participation in the program for labor/workforce-related infractions outside of the scope of the H-2B program.

The Carnival Industry Needs Your Help Today:


Please take 10 minutes today to take each of the following actions:

  • Call your Representative today and ask him or her to urge the House Appropriations Committee leadership and their Party Leadership to remove Sections 116, 117 and 118 of Fiscal Year 2022 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittee Appropriations Bill before the legislation is considered by the Appropriations Committee on Thursday, July 15.  You can reach your Representative through the Capitol Switchboard at 202-225-3121. Once connected to the office, please ask to speak to the staff person who handles Department of Labor appropriations.
