WHY BUSINESS NEEDS IMMIGRANT WORKERS
Of all the critical questions facing lawmakers working to craft immigration reform, one of the most pressing is how to fix the legal immigration system so it works for employers and for the U.S. economy. Even in a sluggish economy, small business owners in a wide range of sectors turn to less-skilled immigrant workers when they can’t find enough willing and able Americans. In agriculture, hospitality, food processing, construction, home health care and other industries, these employers need a visa program that allows them to hire foreign workers legally. Please join a panel of business owners from across the U.S. who will explain why they count on immigrants – the kinds of jobs they seek to fill, the wages they offer, how they try to hire Americans, how immigrants help them keep their businesses open and contributing to the economy.
|WHEN||Friday, March 1, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.|
