Mr. White Featured in The Landscape Contractor
Mr. Bob White, who spoke at the recent Illinois Landscape Contractors Association, was featured in the February 2006 edition of The Landscape Contractor. Landscape contractors rely heavily on immigrant labor and closely follow developments in immigration law. In the article, "H-2B & You," Mr. White outlines government proposals for immigration law reform and suggests that employers support the McCain/Kennedy Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act of 2005. The act would create a new H-5A visa for low-skilled workers, those who form the base of the landscape contracting labor pool. In the meantime, Mr. White implores companies to take full advantage of the H-2B visa program, which allows people to work in the U.S. for a limited period of time in positions unfilled by U.S. citizens.
