    Description: Under section 212(a)(5)(A) of the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(5)(A)), certain aliens may not obtain 
a visa for entrance into the United States in order to engage in 
permanent employment unless the Secretary of Labor has first certified 
to the Secretary of State and to the Attorney General that: (1) There 
are not sufficient U.S. workers who are able, willing, qualified and 
available at the time of application for a visa and admission into the 
U.S. and at the place where the alien is to perform the work; and (2) 
the employment of the alien will not adversely affect the wages and 
working conditions of U.S. workers similarly employed. Form ETA 750, 
parts A and B, is the application form submitted by employers that 
forms the basis for a determination as to whether the Secretary shall 
provide such a certification. Form ETA 750, part A, is also utilized to 
collect information that permits the Department to meet Federal 
responsibilities for administering two nonimmigrant programs: The H-2A 
and H-2B temporary labor certification programs. The H-2A temporary 
agricultural program establishes a means for agricultural employers who 
anticipate a shortage of domestic workers to bring nonimmigrant aliens 
to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or 
seasonal nature. The H-2B program establishes a means for employers to 
bring nonimmigrant aliens to the U.S. to perform nonagricultural work 
of a temporary or seasonal nature.
