Refugees are Work Authorized
Refugees are fully authorized to begin working immediately in the United States by the US Department of Justice.
Good Work Ethic
Having lost homes, personal property and careers in their home countries, refugees have a strong desire to regain self-sufficiency and economic stability for their families.
Your business could qualify for certain tax credits and training incentives when you employ those receiving public assistance.
Positive Economic Impact
Refugees begin paying taxes upon employment, which helps make contributions to the economy.
Availability of Employees
With new arrivals eager to work coming to the US every day, Catholic Charities MRS has the ability to fill job openings quickly. Employers can avoid advertising costs and take advantage of free referral services.
Skills and Experience
Refugees have a variety of work experience and skills. Many are well-educated and were professionals and small business owners in their home countries. Others were farmers or traders. Most refugees arrive with many years of work ahead of them, which gives US employers access to well-trained workers who are looking for long-term employment.
Promotes Community & Self-sufficiency
Hiring refugees helps to get them off public assistance and on the road to self-sufficiency, strengthening families and the community.
