US immigration could be the solution to shortages for US manufacturers

John Dalrymple, president of Hamill Manufacturing, which is a small company making precision parts, said: "I'd hire ten machinists right now if I could. That's eight per cent - ten per cent of our workforce." Jeff Kelly, chief executive officer of the company agreed saying: "Our workforce is an aging workforce. There isn't a queue of people lining up to come into the industry." It is believed that when the baby boomer generation retires the shortage will become even more of a problem. People with the skills needed can apply for American work visas or take American online visa assessments.

US immigration is administered by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services which has 15,000 federal employees and contractors working around the world.

America needs skilled workers: anyone interested in American immigration should complete the American Visa Bureau's online American visa application to see if they qualify for an American visa.
