J1 student visa workers keep Door County tourism humming after Labor Day

Door County tourism business will continue on after the Labor Day weekend with a lot of help from overseas students.  Young men and women with J1 student visas are taking on more importance this month as more U.S. students get ready for the Fall semester.  Phil Berndt, with the Door County Visitor Bureau, says J1 students have a different school calendar and that is a big boost to the area economy.



J1 students throughout their time in the U.S. also get four weeks to visit the U.S. and spend some of their money supporting local businesses.
