Sides reach broad agreement on immigrant guest workers

Washington (CNN) - Business and labor negotiators working to hammer out a deal on an immigrant guest worker program have reached broad agreement, a source familiar with the talks said Saturday, eliminating one major hurdle to legislation revamping the nation's immigration system.

Business leaders and labor groups had been working to develop a plan on guest workers, tackling major sticking points on how much workers would be paid and the number of workers that would be allowed into the country each year.

    Aren't the republicans on another two week vacation? And they get paid for it. This is the 5th or 6th time so far this year (3 months). Fire them all. When I worked I was lucky to get a one day weekend.

    Not the way I heard it. I think CNN is reporting inaccurately.
