H-2A, H-2B, J1. All on pause, handcuffing small business. It's a political move, pandering to his base, that hurts business owners. Those out of work don't want these jobs.

Pandering to his base? Do you understand that those visas are supposed to be handed out to make workers available when there is a shortage? I think the shortage was over about 9 percent ago......

 

I guess JoeyZ scared you out of the other thread...

Wrong. Try getting a 20 yr old kid to take a seasonal job at $16/hr. I need 12 from April to Nov.

Joey suggested I start thread, so I did.

 

Trump wants to get reelected. This makes him look tough on immigration but hurts small businesses that need seasonal workers to do jobs Americans won't.

Golf courses, landscaping, ski resorts... They're not 12 month operations buy they service millions of us. 

 

In RI, seasonal workers get 5 sick days. And since we're not hiring illigals, they're entitled to workers comp if out for an extended period.

Sorry Americans wont work for your crappy wages. Even more sorry that orange man cut your supply of easily exploited illiterates.

Lol. They're making tens of thousands more than they'd make at home. They're provided comfortable housing and treated respectfully.

There's a pandemic.Should we just bring them here and give them a 1200.00 check ?

Well you start before school is over and you end after school starts. So your cutting out the college kids already. You won’t get a dependable family man because it’s seasonal. 

 

......I understand how workman’s comp works but if they get the flu or need an appendix out......who pays for that?
