The Essential Worker Immigration Coalition (“EWIC”) is a broad-based coalition of national businesses and trade associations from across the industry spectrum who support comprehensive immigration reform and are concerned with the shortage of both semi-skilled and unskilled (“essential worker”) labor. EWIC supports policies that facilitate the employment of essential workers by U.S. companies that are unable to find American workers.
The Essential Worker Immigration Coalition supports comprehensive immigration reform that includes:
- A workable guest worker program that properly accounts for America’s current and future workforce needs.
- An employment verification system that is easily accessible, fair, inexpensive, and efficient for all employers.
- A realistic option for the 10-11 million unauthorized immigrants living and working in the United States to earn legal status.
