With the U.S. pork industry facing a severe labor shortage, National Pork Producers Council manager of competition, tax and labor issues, Jack Detiveaux, says the organization has created a campaign specifically addressing the H-2A program.
Detiveaux says several factors are leading to the current labor shortage.
Detiveaux explains the “Year-Round Pork Needs Year-Round Workers” campaign.
Detiveaux adds the campaign is intended to target both the public and lawmakers.
