New York toughened up requirements for builders: what to do to our immigrants

In the USA, in particular in New York, there is a shortage of specialists in the construction industry. Construction companies have difficulty in hiring qualified employees, so they are willing to pay well for their services. Such work can help new immigrants to quickly get on their feet and receive stable earnings.

However, since December 1, the situation in this industry in New York has become a bit more complicated. This day entered into force new rulesrequiring employees of large construction sites to take the Safety at the Construction Site (OSHA) course.
