Dear NumbersUSA Online Activist,
The details of the Omnibus spending bill are being worked out on Capitol Hill as I type this alert. Reports are coming out saying that lawmakers may try to include increases of H-2B visas in this gigantic piece of legislation.
H-2B visas are used to fill blue collared jobs such as truck driving, landscaping and hotel work. This visa program is helping keep wages stagnant for all workers in these categories. It also is helping companies replace hard-working Americans with foreign workers whom they can pay less.
