Immigration and the Small Business Workforce

0 Wednesday, May 22, 2019 @ 11:30

The Committee on Small Business will meet for a hearing titled, “Immigration and the Small Business Workforce.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:30 A.M. on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Temporary and permanent immigration have long been at the forefront of national conversation. Much of the time, the labor force needs and concerns of small businesses in every sector are overlooked. Members will hear testimony from witnesses on the challenges they face in recruitment and retention of domestic workers, and what solutions immigrant labor has provided in addressing these issues. The hearing will also examine the current challenges small businesses face in hiring qualified foreign labor and what legislative solutions would help them.
