Prevailing wage for existing green card holder

Recommended Posts

I am a green card holder. I got my GC based on my spouse's priority date under EB2 last year. My employer also started process for my GC but cancelled it since I got my GC through my spouse.


Recently my employer increased around 20k more for people in identical job as mine under H1B to meet the prevailing wage for the employees to apply for GC.


Since I am already on GC, do prevailing wages apply for me as well even though I applied through my spouse and not through employer or I am out of luck and prevailing wage doesnt apply for me?


I am planning to ask for the increase as they increased for others to meet the prevailing wage but need to make sure the same terms apply to me as well before I ask my employer.

No. Your salary is the result of negotiation between you and your employer(s). It also looks like you are being underpaid.
