Washington, D.C. – June 29, 2020 – North America’s Building Trades Unions (NABTU) President Sean McGarvey issued the following statement on guest worker programs:

“We are pleased that the Administration is moving to curtail the expansion of business models that rely on importing low-wage foreign labor that undercuts the wages and working conditions of American workers. This is especially important now that 20 million Americans are looking for work, and further demonstrates the need to reform the current guest worker visa system. We look forward to helping to get America back to work and ensuring the integrity of the tens of thousands of applications to renew guest workers already in the United States that are not affected by the President’s important Executive Action.”
