  •   A minimum of 96,000 a year? To start? Hell, (9+ / 0-)

    that's more than I earn after 20 years on the job.  

    That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

    •  It is in Baltimore where the cost of living is (5+ / 0-)

      higher than some other areas.  It's also 'commuting' distance with DC, helping to up the cost of living.

      If they were to offer me that here in Iowa, I'd be making a killing by comparison.  I'm basically doing the same thing that this company is advertising for, just a different company.  We use Docucorp set up vs the HP exstream, but may be going to the extream within the next couple of years.  This is a job for a 'print' system - end of the line, before getting stuffed into an envelope and mailed to the clients.  I've got everything, except the exstream, in spades.

      Experienced database administrator/programmer/developer in Baltimore?

      For this type of job posting, the company is obligated to pay the non-US worker at least the prevailing wage for the job in the local labor market.

      This is to protect immigrant workers from indentured-servitude wage levels, and also to prevent employers from weakening the wage levels enjoyed by US workers.

      It's the best protection, really, in the PERM program - it's no guarantee (nothing is when business and money get in bed together) but its aim is to ensure that businesses only utilize the program when they absolutely need the foreign-worker talent, and not for reasons of undercutting salaries.

      •  This is a fake job posting. (7+ / 0-)

        What this means is there is already a H-1B worker working in this job, and the employer wants to hire the person permanently.

        They are required to post this.  Even if you have the exact qualifications for this job you will just be wasting your own time.  

        Your interview will be conducted by the H-1B who will get the job if he can show you don't qualify.  What are the odds he will choose you over himself?  He will find some reason why no-one qualifies.  You will not be told the reason such that you can challenge it.  THe reason you will get is that there was another more qualified candidate.

        THe company will tell the USCIS that no qualified Americans applied for the position.
