CEOs from top corporations have joined the chorus of companies pushing for Immigration Reform. In a letter to Congress, these executives outlined several areas that need to be addressed through meaningful Immigration Reform in order for companies to successfully conduct business, including:
- Method for employers to verify eligible workers
- Opportunity for illegal immigrant workers who bolster U.S. prosperity and sustain jobs for Americans to come forward and be able to legally work in the U.S.
- Establishment of visa program for less-skilled workers seeking year-round jobs to fill the pending gap from the retiring baby-boom generation
Many EWIC coalition members and member companies continue to ask Congress to act on immigration legislation this Summer. For more information or to view the full CEO Support Letter, please visit www.ewic.org.
