Current Issue
RCI has identified an important issue of interest to all our members concerning the Workforce for an Expanding Economy Act.

The U.S. construction industry has more jobs available than workers to fill them. The difficulty of finding enough workers to fill job openings continues to be a serious problem.

The Workforce for an Expanding Economy Act legislation will help address workforce shortages by establishing a new visa system that enables employers to meet their workforce needs and grow their businesses. H.R. 6536 establishes an innovative, market-driven visa system that allows potential immigrant workers to fill job openings for employers with year-round, non-farm positions.
