If someone is making statement like ' you cannot take pay hike...' ask them to give example cases they have seen that were denied and they can be verified. It should include RFE and denial notice that clearly says application was denied because salary was more than specified in labor certification.
There is a minimum wage requirement for H1b and Green card not maximum wage.
I got raise many time in my career with same company , during my 4 H1b ext and GC USCIS never asked any question / RFE on why this person is getting more salay than minimum wage.
You should not get less than minimum wage but you can get more than minimum wage.
Let me make it clear though my job title remain same for GC and they made one time change in title before H1B ext and GC process start.
