The H-2B visa allows employers to bring foreign workers to the United States for temporary non-agricultural jobs, such as landscaping, hospitality and other industries. Congress sets a cap for the number of visas allowed per fiscal year. Currently, that cap stands at 66,000, with 33,000 for workers starting employment October 1 to March 31, and 33,000 for those employed April 1 to September 30.
“It’s a race for those 33,000 visas,” said Jeff Joseph, an immigration attorney based in Colorado.
“More employers are filing than in the past and that’s directly related to unemployment. Where they may have found more workers in the past, there’s a struggle,” he added, noting that obtaining a visa is an extensive process and not an easy or simple alternative for those seeking employees.
