DHS proposes delaying and reevaluating its previous rule replacing the H-1B lottery with wage-based allocation. The Niskanen Center estimates that replacing the H-1B lottery with prioritization for higher prevailing wage levels would raise average H-1B earnings by more than $7,000. It would delay implementating the modified requirements by just one year, and would cost national income more than $6 billion over ten years in net present value. Replacing the lottery is all the more urgent given the economic conditions brought about by COVID-19.
