Re: Joe Guzzardi's Column: Leisure Industry Considers A New Idea (For It)—Hiring Americans!
Because I live in Massachusetts, Guzzardi's columns about Cape Cod and the H-2B visa scam piqued my interest.
When I was growing up, many of my high school and college friends would get summer jobs on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket. When I visited, they would be living two or three in a room, much as they do in college dorms.
And they were having the best summer of their lives.
So I knew that Cape Cod's alleged concerns about not finding summer help and therefore desperately need more non-immigrant H-2B visas were bogus.
More than 300 people per hour attended with hundreds of job applications submitted. [Hyannis Job Fair Deemed a Success, By Matthew M. Burke, Cape Cod Times, April 15, 2008]
There's a good lesson here: Americans are ready, willing and able to work—as long as Congress and the cheap labor lobby doesn't make it impossible for them.
