A research collaboration of Jobs With Justice Education Fund and the Economic Policy Institute

Guestworker programs allow U.S. employers to hire foreign workers on a temporary basis. Despite their prominence, the U.S. government has published limited information about how employers use nonimmigrant visa programs. To solve for the current lack of transparency, GuestworkerData.org presents new state-by-state analysis of which employers use the H-1B, H-2B, and H-2A guestworker programs and where they are located.
