My name is ruth and i am in georgia state. My question is i just got my h1b approved and the salary offered my was 70K. i am wondering the situation if the minimum wage of 100k is implemented then do all the h1bs salary would need to be revised by the employers. please explain
Congratulations! I can't speculate as to whether potential new H-1B legislation/regulations, should they pass, would apply retroactively. It sounds unlikely, but who knows? And it could be $120,000 or $130,000. You will have to follow the news, like the rest of us.
If the prevailing wage requirements change, your employer will likely need to raise your wage at the time of filing your H-1B extension or sooner, if the new regulations mandate this. Just a word of caution, it is not a good idea to disclose your personal details (such as name and wage) in an online forum.
