Do I really have to pay the H-1B worker more than the prevailing wage?
How hiring H-1Bs can impact an employer's pay structure.
I'm the hiring manager for a mid-sized technology company. We pay our workers amounts that we think are fair, and new employees accept our offers. Recently I’m getting applications from foreign students for a new position we advertised, which I guess could be the basis for hiring someone on an H-1B visa. But I’ve read that we'll need to pay the H-1B worker the "prevailing wage." Could this mean we have to pay this new person more than our current employees?
