U.S. Immigration laws require that the wage offered to a foreign worker(H-1B, H-2B, E-3, etc) must be the prevailing wage rate for the occupational classification in the area of employment. The employers can obtain this wage rate by submitting a request to the National Prevailing Wage Center (NPWC).
The wage database is different from other visa databases on myvisajobs.com. It includes all prevailing wage determinations issued from the OFLC iCERT Visa Portal System since January 20, 2010. Every record includes employer name, job title, work location, education requirement, experience requirement, industry, occupation, visa class, minimum wage and lots of other information.
“Both the H1B Visa program and labor certification process are highly controversial, especially when the unemployment rate is still high. Keeping the data public and the process transparent are critical for protecting the interests of American workers and foreign workers,” explains Bill Zhao, the founder and CEO of myvisajobs.com.
