EB3- I is finished pretty much. It is illogical now to expect GC even. Need to accept reality and look at other options in life.

Arrived Aug 2002. Got GC last month. I would suggest people to file for GC as early as possible. Do not change employers for money (unless unless it is really really really necessary) until u get GC.

Default 10 yrs+

Landed in Feb 2000 ....

1. 1st employer cheated me on GC-Labor in 2003 - sold/substituted my labor to some lucky fellow.

2. 2nd employer filed GC-Labor in Mar 05 (really) but silently did it in in EB3 it took 2 yrs for Labor and almost 2 yrs for I-140 in Jan 2009 and by that time recession has hit us.

3. 3rd employer trying a EB2 upgrade by a new PERM Labor in Dec 2010 - the employer seems better than 1 and 2 but don't know until i get it at hand

Default 10+ years and no EAD

kalinga_sena case seems to be the worst.

Besides kalinga_sena and me, looks like gclabor07 and mgmanoj have also been in the US 10+ years and still don't have an EAD. That will be an interesting poll too: 10+ years in the US and still no EAD.
