On Wednesday, Democrats in Congress introduced HR 2169, the Protect Our Workers from Exploitation and Retaliation Act. The bill aims to expand a visa program for victims and whistleblowers, and give protection for undocumented workers in labor disputes. The bill would remove the 10,000 visa per year cap on the U visa program, lower the application expenses, and add victims of serious labor violations to the eligibility list. The bill has received support from labor unions in particular.
