Hiring Foreign Workers to meet Temporary Demands

There are many industries that have a need for temporary workers. These include stores during the holiday season, ski resorts during the winter, popular vacation destinations during the summer months, and agricultural companies that need personnel to assist in planting or harvest. All of these employers may benefit from hiring workers to meet their temporary demands. Hiring full-time workers for these types of jobs is not cost-efficient for any company. Temporary workers come in, they get the job done and then when the demand no longer exists, they return to their home country. It would not be fair to hire a worker in a full-time position only to fire him or her during the slow seasons, yet without the personnel necessary to keep up with temporary work demands there can be significant financial losses.

The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) has various foreign worker programs that companies can use to recruit foreign workers with special talents and training. For example, an H-2A visa can be used to bring seasonal agriculture workers to perform manual labor in the fields, in packing plants and in other agricultural capacities. The hospitality industry often brings trained foreign workers into the United States on H-2B visas to fill a temporary demand for food service workers, housekeepers, chefs, maintenance personnel and other positions during peak season. As it stands now, there are only a set number of work-related visas that are issued each year.
