If you have not already done so, please reach out to your Representative and ask him or her to sign the attached letter that Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) is circulating about processing delays at the Department of Labor.  We need as much pressure from the Hill as possible to ensure that DOL addresses delays to that employers can get their H-2B workers on time.  You can reach your Member of Congress through the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121.

Letter to the editor - Attached is a draft letter to the editor about the importance of the H-2B program.  We encourage you to personalize the letter and include specific information and the impact on your business if you do not get your workers on time.  The quotes that everyone provided use are extremely helpful as we reach out to the Hill.  This template letter to the editor is another forum in which you can talk about the importance of the H-2B program to your business, your workers and your community.

Thank you for your continued efforts!
