Christine Annand | DOL and DHS New Regulations Target Wage and Degree Requirements

On Tuesday October 6th, in tandem, the Department of Labor and Department of homeland Security released two major regulations that will overhaul the guest worker program largely targeting wage and degree requirements for specialty occupations.
