- Visiting Maine
HospitalityMaine is keenly focused on the number one issue facing our members – securing a capable and reliable workforce. With unemployment at record low levels and Maine’s unenviable position as the oldest state in the nation, the growth and sustainability of Maine’s hospitality industry is severely threatened by a shortage of employees. Unfortunately, hiring foreign temporary workers to fill peak seasonal needs is by no means a permanent solution. Not only are these H2B and J1 workers costly to secure, transport and house, but the Federal program itself is unreliable due to the changing political landscape, red tape and caps on the amount of workers who are allowed to participate.
