10/22/08 - Yakama Nation considers licenses or permits for foreign workers

Author:

A member of the Yakama Nation is working to create a tribal guest-worker program that would require licenses or permits for foreign workers and nontribal citizens working on reservation lands. The tribal council recently approved the program, Schaptakay Labor Works LLC, which is incorporated under the tribe. Former tribal Councilman Wendell Hannigan now plans to talk to growers in hopes of getting their cooperation.
