Why U.S. employers file over 300,000 Labor Condition Application(LCA) every year while only about 100,000 H1B visas are issued? What's the difference between LCA and H1B Visa?

Before U.S. employer can file H1B visa petition with USCIS, it must fill Labor Condition Application(LCA) with the Department of Labor(DOL) demonstrating that it is paying the required wage for this position in the geographic region where the job is located. 

When an employee renews or transfers his H1B visa or changes work location under some circumstances, he also needs to have a new LCA. DOL typically certifies more than 3 times the number of LCA than the number of H1B visas issued by USCIS. click here to know more about LCA and work visa
