NHLA Sues DOL & DHS over H-2B rules
Recognizing the new H-2B rules as job killers that have been enacted illegally, the NHLA has joined in suing DOL and DHS in Federal court. “These new rules are having a chilling effect on companies otherwise poised to grow. These businesses not only provide the seasonal jobs that too few Americans are willing to take, but they also add year-round jobs that Americans do want and that Hispanic Americans, because of their industry experience and linguistic and cultural competencies, are especially qualified to fill,” noted NHLA Executive Director Ralph Egües.
