Georgia Rep. Buddy Carter and other members of Congress met with Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta to discuss recommended changes to regulations regarding the H-2A. The officials outlined seven key areas where they wanted to see regulation reform. Those areas are:

  • Streamline the application process and improve operating efficiencies.
  • Refine domestic recruitment requirement
  • Improve housing availability
  • Changes to program eligibility
  • Make the wage rate more transparent and predictable
  • Provide for mediation and arbitration agreements
  • Transportation adjustments
