Immigration — Is the Agricultural Guestworker Act (AG Act) Finally the Solution?
The American Dairy Coalition (ADC) will host a presentation at World Dairy Expo 2017 to discuss how a new guestworker visa program may provide a viable solution for dairy producers who desperately need secure and reliable labor.
Thursday, October 5th
Monona Room, World Dairy Expo 2017
Attendees will learn details on how the Agricultural Guestworker Act (AG Act) may help the dairy industry find reliable, year-round labor from ADC Founder and CEO Laurie Fischer. Fischer has worked extensively with the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), on the creation and preparation of this bill. She has provided the Chairman with critical knowledge of the struggles our industry faces in finding workers. Fischer will give attendees insider details on the AG Act, answer audience questions, collect feedback to provide back to the Chairman, and lay out the next steps the bill must take. Do not miss your chance to become part of the solution! Our industry has waited 20 years for meaningful immigration reform. Your valuable voice is necessary to ensure this bill can provide relief to producers across the nation who do not know who will milk their cows.
This is a limited-seating event. RSVP today to reserve your spot.
