Webinar | 2:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. ET

Despite recent inflationary pressure, certain U.S. business sectors are booming. Unfortunately, endemic shortages of skilled and unskilled workers continue to hinder business growth and profitability. Can the U.S. immigration system help to alleviate some of those roadblocks?

Join PMA on July 19 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a review of the legal, business-sponsored, temporary and permanent, work visa options under U.S. law. Chris Allen of AMS Global Immigration will discuss the limited visas available in the immigration system, and the challenges manufacturers face accessing those workers. In addition, PMA’s lobbying team in Washington, D.C., will provide an update on where changes to immigration policy stand in the nation’s capital.
