The annual burden for these information collections increased from 223,331 to 227,687 hours resulting in an increase of 4,356 hours over ETA's previous estimate. The burden hours have increased due to ETA's re-evaluation of the hourly burden for appeals. The number of employers being placed into supervised recruitment has decreased; therefore the annual cost burden has decreased from $750,000 to $467,000. The decrease in cost is due to the economic downturn of the last several years in which U.S. workers were unemployed and available for work thereby requiring fewer foreign workers to be brought in to the U.S. and fewer applications being filed.
