Prevailing wages

Recommended Posts

My case -

I have 12 years of experience

My GC was filed 8 years ago in EB3 under as a Sr. QA person

Since then I have got my I140 approved.

After which I changed my profile from QA to Project Manager

Last year when I submitted a request to port my case from EB3 to EB2 through my company. After few months, I was told that the prevailing wage for my title is very high (above $170K) as per DoL.

Questions -

1. Have I hit a roadblock?

2. Is the prevailing wages that high?

3. Are there other alternatives?

The prevailing wage is not one number. It varies based on the job description and the region where the job is located.

In certain high-cost areas, e.g., Silicon Valley, it may not be unusual.

You need to discuss this with your employer and your immigration lawyer.
