Association Takes Issue With Anti-immigration

The New Jersey Nursery and Landscape Association (NJNLA) takes issue with the anti-immigration movement's statement that there are, "Plenty of Americans just waiting to dig root balls and cut grass, if only employers would raise wages." NJNLA believes that an aging population, declining growth in the young workforce, and young workers' lack of interest in taking some jobs, makes hiring foreign workers essential. The NJNLA is also somewhat critical of the border-enforcement measures recently passed by the House of Representatives, claiming that they: "Sidestep critical provisions that would ensure the nursery and landscape industry access to a legal workforce."
