Prevailing Wage Immigration Requirements

Who is required to pay the prevailing wage?

Employers who are petitioning to get green cards for foreign workers are required to pay at least the prevailing wage for the position, if the petition requires an employer and the filing of the Department of Labor’s Form ETA 9089. This includes EB2 cases, EB3 cases, Schedule A cases including nurses, and Other Worker cases. This is also the minimum wage that must be offered to any qualified applicants for the position.
