U.S. Custom Harvester’s Incorporated Past President and Board Advisor J.C. Schemper says immigration and labor issues were a big topic at the USCHI convention. “All of our help in 2020 was here late and it put a curve ball for all of us to get labor in to help. It’s a hot topic.” Obtaining Commercial Driver’s Licenses were another area of concern. “When COVID came in, we had trouble getting into the Department of Motor Vehicles to get our crews their license for the year. If they’re closed, how do you make an appointment to get that? For us, March to May is the biggest time to get the licensing done.”
