This is some good news for the immigration reform effort in Washington, D.C. Both the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and AFL-CIO announced they had reached agreement on how to create a visa program for low-skilled workers. I actually like to call these employee highly skilled, because they are very skilled at what they do, but work in jobs that require less educated workers.
This is a key part of immigration reform which would create a work visa program that would meet the demands of employers without hurting the wages or job opportunities for U.S. workers.
They agreed on a guest worker program, which is a huge step in the right direction.
Kent Hoover reports that he support of these two powerful organizations -- which fight each other on most issues -- could lead more members of Congress to vote for the bill.
