Issues with the LCA can impact USCIS adjudication of the H1B petition, eg in the past USCIS has occasionally argued that positions classified under Level 1 wages for purposes of the LCA may not be H-1B caliber positions, and it has also looked at the job classification used in the LCA in assessing whether the job qualifies as an H1B specialty occupation.

What did they do the wages, did they file according to the new guidelines?

I filed one last week. Still waiting for premium processing review. I would not jump to the conclusion that the RFE is wage-related unless they filed you as a level 1 or the job classification was a stretch in order to meet the higher wage requirements now.

It cannot be wage related bc that’ll be an issue in getting your lca certified from DoL. if your application already went to uscis, it means your lca was certified aka wage was not a problem
