Herder Rule Under Attack
In Washington D.C., worker advocates have been filing cases attacking the H-2A Herder Rule that issued separate standards and procedures for occupations related to the herding or production of livestock on the range. As many of you may know, this occupation is unique because the jobs are usually located in remote areas and require employees to generally be on call for 24 hours per day and 7 days per week. Thus, the DOL allowed deviations from the general H-2A program. Worker advocates are alleging that these employees are owed millions in wages.
