Save Money on Taxes!
What most employers don’t know is that by employing students from the J-1 Exchange Visitor Programs whether they work in unskilled or skilled positions, you actually save money. The student’s pay rate and compensation package must be comparable to US peers in the same positions and they must meet minimum wage requirements; however, employers are not responsible for FICA and FUTA payroll taxes. That’s a great savings.
On August 17th, hundreds of student guestworkers from around the world were joined by unemployed American workers and labor leaders in a factory sit-in at the Hershey's Chocolate Company packing plant in Pennsylvania. The students paid $3,000-$6,000 each to come to the U.S. this summer for what they thought would be a cultural exchange program through the State Department's J-1 visa. Instead, they found themselves packing chocolates at the Hershey's plant in deeply exploitative conditions. After automatic weekly deductions for rent in company housing and other expenses, they net between $40 and $140 per week for 40 hours of work.They talked about their struggle and asked for our support at the JwJ national conference last week. The student guestworkers aren’t the only ones who have suffered. If Hershey hadn't chosen to subcontract to have its chocolates packed by exploitable guestworkers, 400 workers in Central Pennsylvania could have had living wage, union jobs. The students' demands: End the exploitation of student workers at the Hershey's plant and return the $3,000-$6,000 that the student workers paid for a cultural exchange That Hershey's make these living wage jobs for local Pennsylvania workers
