Tell Congress: overturn Bush guestworker regs, in effect Sat
Tell Congress to overturn Bush guestworker regs that went into effect Sat.

Unjust Bush guest worker regulations went into effect Saturday.
Congress has the ability to overturn these regulations. Contact
your lawmakers now!
Thousands responded last month when we shared the devastating
legacy President Bush’s administration has left for farm
workers. President Bush issued new H2A regulations that gut
existing protections for both domestic and foreign farmworkers.
These devastating changes make it easier for growers to slash
the pay of domestic farm workers and hire imported foreign
laborers instead of U.S. field workers. They weaken government
protections in an industry where it can be proven that there are
many violations of the minimum wage, housing requirements and
other rules.
These regulations went in effect Saturday. However, there is
still hope if Congress and President Obama take immediate
action. President Obama should put these regulations on hold on
day one. And Congress should do its part to overturn these
regulations as part of its efforts to turn this country around.
The new Obama Administration is facing a mountain of problems
left by the outgoing administration. All of them are important.
And all require action.
We need your help to ensure that farm workers do not get buried
under the pile of crises. With a vote in Congress and a stroke
of a pen, the new administration can reverse the terrible
changes the Bush Administration wrote into effect. Please act
now and e-mail your congressmembers today and ask them to take
immediate action.
