Roofing industry employers continue to have difficulty finding workers to fill job openings, and it is crucial Congress pass legislation to help address this issue. NRCA is encouraging NRCA members to urge their legislators to approve the Workforce for an Expanding Economy Act (H.R. 6536). This legislation is designed to address chronic workforce shortages in roofing and similar industries by establishing a market-driven visa system that enables employers to meet their workforce needs and grow their businesses.
H.R. 6536 establishes an innovative, market-driven visa system that allows potential immigrant workers to fill job openings for employers with year-round, non-farm positions that cannot otherwise be filled. This is a vital long-term solution to the roofing industry’s workforce needs. NRCA has posted an Action Alert asking NRCA members to urge their members of Congress to support this legislation.
