The US will offer additional work visas to provisional immigrant workers even as it faces a shortage of skilled labor. The Trump administration has been working to resolve the labor shortage problem by allowing more temporary immigrant workers in several US industries as clarified by Larry Kudlow, the White House economic advisor. The US government has been looking into legal ways through which temporary immigrants with temporary visas could be allowed in the country.
A number of US employers have been complaining about the shortage of domestic workers and the shutting down of the H-2B visa process. To resolve the problem, the Trump administration has recently opened up a whopping 15,000 of H-2B, on a first come-first serve basis. The additional Work Visas could help the US employers to hire some temporary non-agricultural workers to lighten up the situation during the upcoming busy summer season.
Moreover, a number of businesses have been experiencing a shortage of experienced and qualified workers in a number of diverse jobs across the country. There has been a shortage of the number of labor employees such as truck drivers, technical workers, and many others as stated in a report released by the US Federal Reserve.
It had also been noted by the Labour Department data that the job rates have taken acceleration and the unemployment rates have also gone down to 3.8% in the US. This report significantly pointed out to the tightening labor availability conditions and a rise in the wages. Mr. Kudlow also stated that a rise in the wages could attract more of the Americans into the labor market.
This step might put up a full stop to the worker shortage problem for the US employers. Opening up of the H-2B visas will also help the unemployed qualified workers from all around the world who had been looking into a way to get a well-paying job in the US.
