my EB2 Prevailing wage was sent by lawyers on Nov 15. It has been more than a month already and not yet received.

Also when I filed EB3 back in 2008, the Prevailing wage step took around 40 days.

Hello,
I have two questions.

1. Can prevailing wage be 65K, based on job description, for EB2.
2. Can ads and other work that is already done for employee X, be used for employee Y. Let us say X got his labor cert yesterday, and his ads were given in Oct 1st week.
Can Y use X's preparation work, and file labour tomorrow, assuming both can do the same job.
3. If not, then what else is needed to be done.
4. The ads did not say single position. It did not say multiple positions also.

Thanks You,
Bobby.

It has been more than 45 days for me. Has anyone applied in December and received PW from DOL recently?

We made an application in late October and just received an answer last week.

mine was sent out on Nov 15 and was received on Jan 6. So approximately 50 days. They do take their sweet time.
