Business Owners in Florida Call to Expand Immigration Permits for Migrants to Work Following Labor Shortages
With the increasing labor shortages in Florida, business owners urged the Biden administration to expand immigration permits for migrants to work longer in various industries.
According to business owners who joined the call for the expansion of the permit, migrants have been a great help in filling the positions of manual labor in different industries, including agriculture, as the Americans did not want to work as farmers.
