(PODCAST) Wall Street Journal Podcast Discusses how the Trump Administration’s Ban on Foreign Workers Harmed the American Economy

But as WSJ’s Alicia Caldwell explains, even with high unemployment, many of those positions were left unfilled, American workers were laid off in the process, and the overall economy took a hit. This 20-minute podcast features an interview at the 10:20 mark with Denise Beckson from Morey’s Piers in Wildwood, one of the businesses reeling from the loss of temporary workers.
