Download Audio

The weather feels like it’s maybe starting to turn the corner - which means pretty soon folks, summer will be here. And perhaps nobody knows the changing seasons better than businesses on the Cape and Islands. But right now, those businesses are in limbo. Because the seasonal workers they rely on aren’t sure they can get the all-important visas that let them work in Massachusetts. WBUR host Paris Alston speaks with reporter Jennette Barnes about this story.
