This is the time of year when more time and effort goes into celebration and revelry than any other season.  The festive spirit leads to decorations and parties in the office while everyone enjoys the holiday scene.  Employees need to be especially vigilant at this time of year because there is more potential for accidents and injuries due to the presence of alcohol and food at many of the holiday gatherings.  A few simple reminders can help employees avoid problems while maximizing their enjoyment of the holidays:

Driving - practice “safe” driving. 

In an effort to better understand the labor needs required for the winter vegetable season, staff members of the Nogales and Tijuana Consulates traveled to Yuma yesterday and met with WG Board Member Sonny Rodriguez of The Growers Company in Somerton, Arizona, to discuss H-2A processes and to see the harvest in action.  

Andy Stark, vice consul of the Nogales Consulate, made it clear that the State Department's goal is to promote the economy and facilitate the flow of H-2A workers for the industry.
