The U.S. construction industry can build more houses by importing a huge number of foreign workers via the H-2A farm worker program, says an economist who is working for an investor group.
“How do we build more [housing] ASAP?” asked Adam Ozimek, an economist who works for an investor-backed advocacy group.
The article goes on to state the following:
The answer, he said, is a “Dramatic one-time expansion of H2A visas for construction workers.”
Ozimek made the suggestion in a Twitter post last Saturday. He wrote:
Slow moving pressure on the economy. How do we build more ASAP?
1. Remove lumber tariffs immediately and any other tariffs affecting construction prices
2. Dramatic one time expansion of H2A visas for construction workers.
We could treat an economic emergency like an emergency for a minute
