On-going economic problems such inflation, labor shortages, and other economic problems can be reduced by allowing immigrant workers into the country. From agriculture to landscaping, immigrant workers can help with the nation’s economic urgency and reality.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many essential immigrant workers were sent back to their countries which had a ripple effect across industries in the United States. The loss of approximately 2.5 million immigrant workers had a huge effect on the U.S. economy. Many workers haven’t been able to cross back into the United States due to work visas taking months to be renewed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One of the biggest ripple effect victims in the U.S. is the dairy industry and farmers. Many workers in the dairy industry are foreign born, and mainly from Mexico. Full employment in the dairy industry has significantly dropped throughout the COVID-19 pandemic due to immigrant workers being laid off because of expired work permits.
The rippling effects can be felt throughout the country but immigrant workers are essential to boost the nation’s economy.
