Description

CBIA BizCast host Ali Warshavsky speaks with Shipman & Goodwin LLP’s Brenda Eckert, an employment and family immigration law attorney.

Eckert participated on a panel at CBIA’s Economic Update conference last month that focused on the role immigration can play in helping address the labor shortage.

She sees increasing competition for foreign workers, noting Connecticut can support immigration by improving access to affordable housing and transportation.

“One of the challenges for a U.S. employer seeking to employ a foreign worker, or to tap into employing an immigrant workforce, is to create a reputation where the state or local communities within the state is not a problem for immigrants,” said Eckert.
