Door County businesses won't be hurting for summer job applicants. That's despite COVID-19 uncertainties over the J-1 visa program which brings in foreign students for the peak tourism season. There's plenty of interest from college students and other seasonal workers. However, Phil Berndt with Destination Door County says housing options are shrinking and that could turn some well-qualified applicants away.
Berndt says Destination Door County started an out-of-state advertising campaign to attract summer employees after uncertainty arose over J-1 visa students' abilities to come to the U.S. this summer.
