If Congress cannot approve a budget by this Friday at midnight, the federal government will shut down. While it would likely be business as usual for most private employers in the United States, H-2A users could be dramatically impacted.

That is because U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) staff that process H-2A foreign labor certifications are deemed “non-essential” during government shutdowns and are furloughed until the government reopens. H-2A applications that have not been certified by the shutdown will sit in the queue indefinitely.

My journey with Western Growers started back on March 6, 1978, and at that time, I could not have imagined how this opportunity would shape my life. My time at Western Growers has significantly impacted how I view the world of fresh fruits and vegetables—and not just as it relates to Good Arrival Tolerances and filing PACA complaints on behalf of WG members!  I have been privileged every day that I have had the opportunity to work for Western Growers members and I am impressed with our members’ ability to deliver fresh produce to consumers on a daily basis.
