A Closed Labor Market Opening? Maybe.

If you’re a tug-boater who has a job, congratulations, that’s wonderful! If you’re one who’s been out of work and is looking for another job, would you consider working outside the towing sector of the marine industry? Congress is considering making it a requirement that the owners of U.S.-flagged uninspected fishing vessels “post” their job openings to Americans first before being allowed to hire foreigners to crew their vessels. If this is something you would apply for, or not, please take a moment to vote. Click here to go to the poll. Members of congress are interested in seeing the results, so it may really help if you vote!

Thanks!
