The H-2B guest worker program relies on well-vetted workers who come to the U.S. for seasonal employment and then go home. The landscape industry is seasonal and is the largest user of the H-2B program, accounting for nearly half of all H-2B guest workers that use the program annually. Unfortunately, H-2B has an antiquated cap of 66,000 established in the early 1990s and must be fixed to meet the demand of the modern U.S. economy.
NALP continues to prioritize policies and legislation that help solve the workforce crisis for the landscape industry and H-2B continues to be a top priority. Help us advocate for H-2B reform by attending our virtual or in-person events to get the latest updates about the program and connect with legislators. And sign up for Voices for Healthy Green Spaces
(our digital advocacy network) to receive H-2B alerts that you can send to your congress members with just a few clicks of the mouse.
