Business groups are gathering in Washington to lobby against the guest-worker program agreement reached by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and labor groups that would limit the number of available visas. IFA President and CEO Steve Caldeira said he is concerned about the limited size of the program. "[T]he need will always exist to some degree, and a guest-worker program that permits a market-based supply of lower-skill workers is essential. Without such a program, no immigration reform bill will be worthy of the name," he said.
