Wisconsin Congressman Introduces Act to Expand H2A Program
Interesting article about the DAIRY Act, introduced by a Wisconsin congressman to expand the H2A program to include dairy farms. H2A is the current program that can provide temporary, foreign labor for seasonal operations such as orchards, nurseries, and vegetable producers. Dairy farms are excluded from H2A because the work is year-round. Many dairies have tried over the years to find loopholes to use H2A without much success. This bill would include dairy workers in H2A and permit them to have a visa for up to 18 months.
