Improvements to PERM ?

The DOL recently announced a $7.2 million dollar investment to improve the PERM system. The improvements focus on the areas of cybersecurity and technology upgrades. Many of us would love to see some automation, particularly in the area of Prevailing Wage Determinations (PWDs) Why should it take 7 months to determine the correct occupation for a Registered Nurse and assign a wage level when there is no discretion involved ? And, when are the recruitment requirements going to move into this century and eliminate newspaper ads or even better, use current DOL data to determine the scarcity of U.S. workers. Nonetheless, we applaud the improvements.
