Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration


Rate this Entry

The Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) usually is the first step in the processing of an employment-based green card. This is a necessary beginning step for most occupations, including IT and healthcare occupations. The PWD is filed with the US Department of Labor (DOL).

In July, the DOL ceased processing PWDs as the direct result of a lawsuit affecting their H-2B applications. As a result of that lawsuit the entire PERM and Schedule A green card system has been disrupted.

Until the DOL re-commences the processing of PWDs, PERM and Schedule A green card cases may be delayed. It does appear that the resolution is forthcoming. There are reports that the first PWDs in several weeks have been received by the immigration community. If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to contact Musillo Unkenholt.

    , it was as if, at every step, they did the bare minimum to aciheve legal compliance, and refused to consider anything further. A few examples:1) There was Braille signage, but only on the elevators and room doors, nowhere else. 2) The shower-head was attached to a long, flexible arm and mounted on an adjustable slider on a vertical pole, but the staff had positioned it at the highest possible point (about 6 feet off the ground) when last turning over the room, making it virtually impossible for a lone occupant in a wheelchair to reach or re-position it, let alone take advantage of the flexibility.3) There were safety railings EVERYWHERE in the bathroom it looked like a futuristic space-station but nowhere else in the room. And the beds were ridiculously high off the ground. I kept wondering how they expected some wheelchair users to transfer into bed, not to mention whether they would supply a step-stool if requested by very short guests.I know there's a lot to consider when making a space accessible, but our current model of ADA-enforcement only goes so far. We have such a long way to go.

    Towards the end of the lecture, Sam peyald a video which had a man doing a rant about illegal immigrants. In which he addresses Hilary Clinton, saying that they do not have the same rights, and are illegal and should not be allowed equal opportunity. The man also compares illegal immigrants to convicted felons, giving an example of how a criminal couldn t work in his back yard for just two dollars without him getting in trouble for housing and providing work for the criminal. This man, even though he has the right to express his views, does it in the most ignorant way I heard in a long time, and the comments made after are just as sickening to me.
