  • This is a really low base. How will you afford anything?

    Yes, your prevailing wage is definitely on the lower side. Newbies these days make north of 100k easy.

    Is it really a rule saying all h1b now must have salary above 100k?

    It is towards the lower side. You can check the prevailing wage on the labor website by entering the location and job type. Then it will give you different level of wages. I think with 94 in the bay area, you might be wage level 1. Last year uscis did try to reject some applications on level 1 wages, but not for everyone and you can always appeal !

    The prevailing wage needed for your H1B should be public information, and I think it is based on your location. So I think google is more reliable than blind here

      He is right, it’s 2019 h1b! New H1Bs effective Oct 1, 2018 are counted towards FY2019.

    Not sure what H 1 B is but for Bayarea that is a pretty low salary. I'd suggest move to a different state.

    Lower side but it’s quite right for level 1. Luring people to come work cheap!
