Guestworker 20-year Visa Projection for Senate Bill S.744
September 30, 2013
S.744 raises the ceiling on H-1B and H-2B workers and creates a new “W” visa category for both agricultural and non-agricultural workers. In addition, S.744 makes accompanying family members of H-1B professional workers eligible to take U.S. jobs. Like the current H-1B skilled worker visa, the W visa recipients would be authorized to work in the United States for six years (3 years renewable for 3 years).
