Support OABA’s PAC with a Donation to Help H-2B Workforce
The OABA’s Political Action Committee (PAC) fund helps carnivals, independent ride owners and concessionaires support federal elected officials who are involved in the passage of critical legislation related to the mobile amusement industry, including the seasonal, guest worker program, known as the H-2B visa program for foreign employees.
- This seasonal employment program is good for America’s fairs and preserves American jobs!
- Through our professional lobbyists in Washington, DC and other industries that comprise the H-2B Workforce Coalition, we make PAC campaign contributions for Members of Congress who engage with us to address the need for additional seasonal workers for small, family businesses. Currently much of the focus is on the Returning Worker Exemption, which allows for additional H-2B visas beyond the current 66,000 cap for all industries.
- All candidate contributions are approved by the OABA’s Board of Directors.
Please help the OABA with a personal donation of $50.00, $100.00, or more, by clicking on the OABA PAC logo, to complete the form and make a donation, with a personal Visa or MasterCard.
“In Washington you don’t get what you deserve, you get what you negotiate. OABA represents the mobile amusement industry in DC, through our lobbyists, on H-2B seasonal, guest workers. We fight hard for what we need.” – Michael Wood, Wood Entertainment, OABA Chair 2015
“Many of our fairs and expositions know the importance of having a mobile amusement operator and concessionaires who are committed to providing outstanding guest satisfaction. The work the OABA does, with its lobbyists to provide seasonal, guest workers in H-2B visa program, helps all of us work effectively and efficiently to insure American jobs and promote the growth of our fairs.” – Marla Calico, President & CEO, IAFE
