Topic: New Work Visa Executive Order Coming


If it comes to 130K base salary. I work as a mechanical engineer and in manufacturing sector the manager makes that kind of a salary. Salary is capped at 90K base for Sr. mechanical engineer. There's no way they(my company irrespective of my prior experience of 12 years going to raise my pay.
So its game over for me if 130K is made the base.



Nope, that's not true. There's no minimum requirement of 130k for all h1b. The requirement is for h1bs to have a min wage level. The min salary requirement will vary based on job code and region. I think that data is public for all states and you can probably find out what is level 4 wage for your particular situation. Hope this helps!

This 130k figure seem was probably floated by Indian media. The facts are on the official website:

https://lofgren.house.gov/news/documentsingle.as...

The 132k figure given here is just an example and not a fixed minimum salary. Atleast that's how I understand it. Plus if your employer doesn't have more than 15% of the work force on h1b (h1b dependent), I think you have nothing to worry. Also keep in mind there are many other bills like this one. Who knows what will happen. Let's not speculate about the unknowns.

Topic: Job change after H1B premium stop

I feel you man....I am in the exact same situation. But after all these years on h1b, I have decided to no longer let my visa status control me and my career progression and dictate my life choices. So, I am taking a chance.
By the way, most companies actually don't do h1b transfer in premium, unless u specifically request them to (due to upcoming travel plans etc.). I did couple of transfer back in 2006 and 2008 and they were both non premium. I do understand that there's a risk but it is very common for companies to file normal h1b and have u join based on receipt number.
Hope that helps. All the best!

Guys, I am reposting my question:


Question to the mathematicians here:
Say this rule goes through. In your opinion, where would this put eb2 and eb3 dates? Taking the 85% fifo and dependent applications into account.

Topic: Labor Cert

Guys,
Quick question: I have a valid labor cert and I 140 with my current employer. If I switch my employer, and the new position has the exact same role as the current position within same geographical region, does that mean I can transfer/use my original labor cert and just transfer h1b and I 140?

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

No reform will come without its own fair share of compromises.

The unfortunate thing is that so far we were fighting to separate ourselves from illegals. Now it looks like we're fighting against EB1C and Family based visas. Sigh!

I met someone recently who came here on a FB GC, became a citizen in 5 years. We started discussing the challenges my wife and I face everyday because we don't have a GC. For the life of him, he could not relate to a single point and argued that life remains challenging even after GC. Couple of other friends who got greened on EB1C have similar attitude now. Although they were more sympathetic when they were in line. Nothing against EB1C folks but everyone I know still work for the same company on same salary after all these years.
I guess you never understand until you're in that situation. People who came here on a free ride can't possibly understand the our frustrations.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

For EB visas, I understand that they are going to release changes in phases.
For example, for FY17, India and China will be in the 85% of the total pool. 15% will be reserved for ROW.
FY18 and 19 - 90% pool. 10% still reserved for ROW.
and 100% from there on out. Basically First come first served from FY20.

If that's the case, any mathematicians here that can predict what'd the priority date be like for eb2 and 3? They do mention that for eb3 it will reduce the wait times from 70 years to anywhere from 4-5 years.

No mentions about eb2 though. Any wild guesses?

Go, go, go...
Hr 213 had 147 co sponsors. Hoping to reach that number soon. With all republican congress, the only challenge here would be senate, but being that this bill enjoys a bi partisan support, I am keeping up the efforts and optimism:

Congressman Jason Chaffetz introduces HR 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act of 2017. This is similar to HR 213 and 3012. Both bills enjoyed bi-partisan support and this bill will presumably be endorsed by all earlier co-sponsors. With an all Republican congress, here's to hoping that this finally helps all our brothers and sisters stuck in backlog for decades.

Good to see some solid comments pouring in finally. I hope we can reach 50k by end of the month on this one!
Good to see so many strong worded comments coming in. There's so much passion and frustration. I truly hope that other people will look at these comments and the ones suggested by IV and Skilled Immigrants of America before commenting further. They have some excellent examples out there.

Topic: I-140 Rule Comments -- Show me the funny



Exactly, not sure whether these so called high skilled immigrants read the complete rule or not. I believe all these are the employees of shady consulting companies, only those employers hire these kinds of people.

There are comments by american sounding user names which absolutely make no sense:

1. This rule will increase Paris and San Bernandino like attacks
2. H1 visa quota should not be increased
3. Obama is anti-american





I am sure those comments will be ignored. Or atleast I hope they are.

Topic: I-140 Rule Comments -- Show me the funny

Well, I feel it is just being lazy. How many people do you see coming together for a cause in our community?
Skilled Immigrants of America organized a WH rally last month. How many showed up for that? I can't believe that we have just 30 odd people on H1B visa in and around DC area. The least we can do is study the document and then post an informed comment. If you can't even do that and have nothing constructive to post, I do not consider you as a "High Skilled" worker.
I agree that some people have language issues, but come on folks! You really want people to take you seriously when you comment like this?

So far, this has been the only comment that I came across that summarizes the frustation in two simple sentences:
First of all thanks to USCIS in attempting to increase the job portability. But I strongly believe that if an approved I-140 can't be ported to a new employer under similar occupation it is too restrictive and doesn't meet the goal of job portability fully.


People don't read what's the proposed rule about and write comments. I don't know if it's ignorance or being lazy.

We have to leave emotions behind and write specific comments supporting whats being given and asking specifically for more.

Its sad to read all those comments. People need to do better job.

Topic: I-140 Rule Comments -- Show me the funny

So, I've been going through some of the comments that have been posted by my dear EB backlogged desi peers and I must admit some of them are just hilarious. I know that we are all frustrated by this rule, but I though I'd compile some of these so we can see the lighter side of things.
This is not to offend anyone, so please keep the names anonymous. I am personally waiting for some guidance from IV and other sources before commenting.

Also, I noticed that the lawyer groups are already trying to muddy the waters by going into irrelevant technical details that has nothing to do with this proposal.
They could at least pretend to show the disappointment. But many are talking about things like - please replace the words "husband/wife" on this page with "spouse" to avoid confusion. Seriously? That's what you are concerned about??

Anyways...

So, here goes. Don't be hating and feel free to add more to this thread :)

1. Please provide I140 EAD. This is necessory for following reasons:
Employer explotis employee once GC is pending by many ways like no salary hike, poor appraisal ratings, mandatory job trasnfer to any place etc as employer knows he can rnot esign just becasue his i140 will be revoked
-- A simple proof read would be great here. Also, I see a lot of people still don't understand that most of us are NOT getting EADs. Even though you can file H1B extensions based on the original approved I-140, you still need I140 from current employer when it is time to file I-485.

2. WE DO NOT NEED ANY MORE ALIEN WORKERS HERE IN THIS COUNTRY. AMERICANS NEEDS JOBS AND THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO COMPETE WITH FOREIGNERS LET IN HERE TO TAKE JOBS AT LOWER...
-- Obviously this guy has no idea about the proposed rule and didn't even care to read the entire text. He's assuming that this rule is somehow going to increase the number of "Alien Workers". You can tell by ALL CAPS that he's pissed off.

3. Please pass this law, Without this people hands are tied doing nothing, they have to be with the same employer and most of them are not treated well, They dont get hikes, no...
-- I don't, understand, how, this, helps, also, it, is, not, law, it, is, a, proposal

4. Please approve this for rule making and free the high tech slaves.
-- IMHO, using words like these will not help our cause.

5. I140 EAD will give the freedom to choose the employment, employ other people if he/she wants to open the business and that will be helpful to the economy.
-- Really? You can start your own business? I wonder where he got that idea from. Again, only a handful of people will receive EADs, so calling this rule I140 EAD is just absurd.

6. I overwhelmingly SUPPORT this regulation
-- And I am overwhelmed by your SUPPORT!

7. I support
-- Short and simple. Yes, it is an actual comment.

8. We need this to be in place for our wellness

9. i need my ALIEN WORKER
-- Yes, this is also an actual comment.

10. This will save lot of duplicate paper work and time.
-- Actually it won't. You still need to start GC process again and maintain a valid visa, so still lots of duplicate paperwork.

11. I am an Indian born person, paying American taxes
-- So...would you rather pay Indian taxes??

12. I am also agree with it.

13. Please please please help us giving green card or atleast EAD.
-- Please help this man!

Topic: Stay based on H1B extension receipt number/notice

Hi Guys and Gurus,

I filed my H1B extension a few months ago and found out last week that USCIS is still processing June 2nd cases at their CSC right now. With that pace, this will likely go past my current NIV expiration date of January 10th 2016. My question is - Can I continue to stay in the U.S. based on the H1B extension receipt number from USCIS even after my NIV expiration date or should I upgrade the application to premium? I am not planning to travel outside the country anytime soon. Any help or guidance is appreciated.

Topic: H1B Extn. on Approved I140 - 5th month Running No Updates


Today i received update from USCIS and there is no reason for the delay. They have apologized for the delay and asked to keep checking the processing center timelines.

GOD KNOWS WHATS GOING ON.

If they are lobbying on Premium Processing cost, on the otherend our desi companies have some guidelines to upgrade.
Either way our lives are screwing up....God Save !



I am not sure if I understand ur concern here. If u have the receipt no of extension, can't u continue on that even after ur current visa expires? You just won't be able to travel outside the country. My last extension took about 7 months. I am curious though - how long did it take u to get the receipt no. For ur application. I have been waiting for more than 3 weeks now.

Hi, I think they will push the date up to 2015..If they make the date as current, we all will be benefited.



If wishes were horses beggars would ride



Lol! Although I do hope that acceptance date would be at least 2-3 years ahead of approval. Someone asked Greg S on Twitter about a 2014 acceptance date and he says that it is highly unlikely.

Topic: Will CIR pass by end of this year

I have the same question. It seems IV wants everyone to join them, do the things that they think are important, do them the way they want you to do. I have no doubt that they are doing good work, but I am noticing that they really demoralize others making an effort on their own. Some of the points they made regarding lawyers coming out of the woodwork as soon as a rule is implemented is absolutely true. I support and appreciate their good work, just don't like them acting like a big boss and telling others what to do and what not to do. But then again, I feel any effort should be a consolidated effort in order to make an impact. So, I guess I'll go with them :)
