I believe the Indian H2B workers are on day 21 of their hunger strike.

So far, on Regulations.gov I see no comments yet
submitted on DOL’s recently published proposal to amend and streamline the H2B process which can be found here: http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2008/pdf/E8-11214.pdf.
The period for public comment will close July 7..
