Overview

Hoteliers are working hard to build our talent pipeline, but we also need federal policies that help us meet the increasing demand for associates so we can serve our guests and continue to grow.

The domestic labor market alone cannot meet our industry’s workforce needs. The hospitality industry is a significant employer of immigrants. We attract talent from around the globe, including both immigrants and temporary legal guest workers, and offer so many the opportunity to achieve the American Dream.

We support a balanced approach to immigration reform that enables us to meet the increasing demand for employees, while protecting our national security and ensuring all workers are protected by federal labor laws.

AHLA Position

AHLA urges Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

AHLA also calls on Congress to pass legislation that strengthens the H-2B and J-1 visa programs, which the hotel industry relies on to augment our domestic workforce.
