U.S. Labor Dept. Denying More Immigrant Work Permits

World Journal, News Report, Posted: Feb 14, 2009

NEW YORK The U.S. Department of Labor approved fewer permanent labor certificate (PERM) applications for the first quarter of the 2009 fiscal year. PERM allows immigrants to legally work in the United States. The World Journal reports that the denial rate is over 30 percent, which is much higher than the average 22 percent since PERM was introduced in March 2005. Immigrant attorney Danhong Chen said the number of PERM applications has not dropped as expected in recession, but the country is more reluctant to give immigrants work opportunities in the financial crisis.
