Default EB3 - Anyone bothering?

So my PWD came back - and with my 'revised' job description and lower requrements, i'm now going down the EB3 track....

Wondering if its even worth bothering with. Would have to switch to H1-B and i'd be stuck with the same job / company for at least the next 7 years. EB3 priority date has moved forward 1 year in the past 3 years so with the current priority date of August 03 could be as loing as a 21 year wait.

Wonder what my manager will say when I tell him that I am revising my daily tasks to fit in with my new job description. It might be nice actually, as a help desk support person doesnt really have to work a 50+ hour week, does not have to give up weekends to travel to client sites and does not have to worry about working on billable projects. No blackberry means no client calls / emails in the evenings and no more unpaid weekend on-call support. Customer issue to hard to resolve? No problem, leave it in the queue for somone else to deal with...

So - anyone else thinking about EB3? If there is, please shout so I know I am not the only crazy person in this forum.........

depends what is your country of brith. As you may know the queues and priority dates are by "birth" not country of citizenship.

A lot of people are getting frustrated by this and hopping over for alternatives like Australia and Canada. I am one of them.

I'm in Canada right now actually, so perhaps i'll just stay here.... Not sure if my wife would be too happy about that though, or perhaps she would...... lol

I was Born in 'All chargability areas other than those listed' althought right now the 'current' date is the same for everywhere other than India and Mexico.

Not quite true. My OH received his GC Jan 09 priority date Jan 05.
Then they retrogressed to 2001 and are now on 2003, (my priority date is Feb. 05)

Consider what it would take to file for EB-2 (Getting a Master's degree is part of it...)

Porting to EB-2 is possible in some cases, but it may be easier to get approval for a case that started as an EB-2 case. I agree the current visa bulletin is discouraging, but these things are so crazy, sometimes move forward like crazy too... you never know.

My OH has a Masters, but because someone else in a similar position to him didn't have one they couldn't prove that the job required one <sigh>
