Two Oregon lawmakers hope to close loopholes in a visa program that allows forest companies to hire foreign workers while many in the U.S. could be hired for the jobs. Senator Jeff Merkley and Representative Peter DeFazio will introduce the legislation today in Washington D.C. They want to expand where companies are required to post job openings so possible employees will know to apply. The Labor Department says millions of federal stimulus dollars that were meant to put Oregonians back to work last year instead paid wages for more than 250 foreign employees.
