My H1B petition was just filed after being selected in the second lottery. How does the new change in the rule affect me? For context, I am an analyst making 82k. Is that considered above prevailing wage?

I’m no lawyer but look at the DOL site for wages in your state. If you’re entry level around 47%tile I think you should be okay! 🤷🏻‍♂️

How did you get to this?

You’re good at 82k, if you drop below 65k start getting worried. Also piece of advice please switch and get a higher paying job, Indians can get paid much higher if only they go to the right firms , you’re worth more than 82k if y our firm filed you for a. H1 and got i here

Hi l, When EY filed your application, it should have uploaded LCA as well. Take a look at the global immigration portal in documents section you can find it. Mine was also selected in 2nd round and as per LCA certified mine was level 3.

The data in FLC might be wrong to compare as well. refer your LCA. For reference my per annual remuneration is way higher than level 4 flc data. But in LCA it is mentioned as level 3.
