The Biden administration will raise limits on seasonal worker visas by 33 percent
The Biden administration announced on Tuesday that it would increase the availability of seasonal guest-worker visas by 33 percent—a boon for sectors that hire on a short-term basis, like fisheries, restaurants in resort towns, landscapers, and more. This news came shortly after the administration announced that it would allow a Trump-era ban on guest workers to lapse in March. The move was welcomed by business groups, but worried some labor experts, who suggested high unemployment rates, particularly in the hospitality sector, suggest that there are plenty of U.S. citizens looking for work. The Wall Street Journal has the story.
