I recently left the Greater Boston market and many of my friends who are also business owners have turned to the EB-4 and it is working wonders for them... Of course not every LCO is doing it legally and I have even heard rumblings that the program is slated for review and perhaps shut down. Either way, I believe this would be a great topic to dedicate some real estate to in your book....
I use the H2-B program and have used it for over 10 years now. It is a great program but considering it is a government program there are always issues and the possibility of not getting your workers every year is a reality of being in the program. I have traveled to Washington D.C. many times in the past 10 years along with many other landscape company owners from all over the country to try to educate our politicians on the merits of this program. Thanks for the input.
