A way to permanent residence in USA for people who are told there are no way.
 
I'm doing this post for the people who have no special education, no special skills, no family who can sponsor them, and dont want to go through the Hell visa known as e2 visa investor

There are some companies that work with employer in the US that have a hard time finding unskilled labor, these companies offer you an opportunity to work for them and to sponsor you for a green card.

I can already see people calling it a scam, too good to be true etc, and there are scams unfortunately. But do your due dillingence and decide for yourself.

Me and my wife went through the entire process from june 2018 and immigrate to the US in december 2019.

So they sponsored you and your wife for a green card and less than a year later your wife is looking for another job? How can that possibly be financially viable for them? Seems like it would be cheaper for them to just use the sponsorship money and increase the salary they're offering for the job.

.... well why would you spend time and money sponsoring a janitor? With the greatest of respect, there is no shortage of US residents to do janitoring work. How did the company justify a visa for such a position?

If this is an EB-3 visa then one of the criteria is:
  • You must be performing work for which qualified workers are not available in the United States.

An employer has to pay only for the labor certification cost, usually its not for few positions its for 50 or hundreds of positions on several locations. There is a shortage of people willing to work for these kind of jobs. I'm not doing the rules for the labor certfication maybe they're recruiting standard are too low but its another subject. but it seems that they get approvals by the department of labor so...

I don't know why this thread was moved out of the immigration forum by the way, since it's about immigration.

So you work for a pittance to get a green card, and they get a kickback from the lawyers ?

You know you can “buy” a green card for $1-2m: https://www.uscis.gov/working-in-the...vestor-program

Did YOU have to pay any fees to the marketing/consulting company i.e the company who finds you the prospective sponsoring employer?

So just to be clear, you received immigrant visas? And then became US PRs upon entry to the USA? And that all happened within 5 months?

How did your wife find out about the janitorial job, and how did she apply for it?

Where are you from originally?

If you search for employment based Green Cards (EB-3) there are plenty of companies offering their 'marketing and consulting services' to get low skilled workers into the US.

An interesting article from Propublica regarding employer sponsored Green cards and certain categories of people who go for them:

Normally the employer pays all visa related costs though. Presumably if you had to pay for those fees you didn’t get any kind of relocation package or similar either?

God how awful. Imagine being so desperate to get to the US that you’ll put up with that. :(
