The following "call to action" was written by JKJ Workforce regarding a proposed Returning Worker Exemption for the H-2B Program. A returning worker exemption would allow H-2B visa workers who previously worked in the USA the ability to work in the USA in 2022 without counting against the cap. The first half of the cap has already been met and it is predicted demand will be at an all time high for workers for the second half of the cap.
For the majority of carnival companies, many amusement facilities, and some concessionaires, the H-2B program is imperative.
Congressman Henry Cuellar has introduced the HR 3897 H-2B Returning Worker Exception Act of 2021. It currently has 29 co-sponsors. We need to crank that number up in the next 24 hours to over 100 and we can do this.
