For the past few years - per my understanding - returning workers have not been counted against the quota numbers allowed in every year. It seems to have changed this year. In the past, we would be getting workers back in late January - which, honestly, was really too early, but we took them back to try to keep the same workers and deal with those customers who really felt they needed service (we have already had a number of customers wanting us to mow this week.) This year, we'll be lucky if we get them by mid-March. We have tried to hire American, but honestly, all we get are people wanting their unimployment forms signed. Also, truthfully, I'm making more money now than I was before we started using the H2B program just because the owners have had to pay them more and me in turn So, anyone else in the Southern states worrying about how they're going to get by the first couple of months of this season?
