About "H2A Reform"
Affirmative plan reduces restrictions on H-2A visas and gets the illegal workers a pathway to legalization so that they get into the system and become taxpaying members of society. AFF’s theory is that there is a shortage of agriculture workers in the US and we need to bring in more (or legalize the ones already here). But the US agriculture sector has bamboozled the AFF and the public with some fake facts, most notably the “worker shortage.” As in any industry, if you pay sufficient wages, you will get sufficient workers. If they don’t have enough farm workers, it is because they are looking for people willing to work for low pay in terrible conditions. Farms intentionally turn away US citizen workers, so they can get immigrants instead, in part because they get tax breaks for hiring foreigners that they don’t get for hiring US citizens, due to a loophole in the IRS code. They have no incentive to try very hard to get US workers, and their complaints about “jobs Americans won’t do” ring hollow.
