    In the Federal Register of Friday, December 22, 2017, in FR Doc. 
17-27530, on page 60768, in the third column, correct the first 
paragraph to read:

    Thus, the national monthly AEWR rate for all range occupations 
in the H-2A program in 2018 is calculated by multiplying the full 
AEWR for calendar year 2017 by the 2018 ECI adjustment ($1544.07 x 
1.026 = $1,584.22). Accordingly, any employer certified or seeking 
certification for range workers must pay each worker a wage that is 
at least the highest of the monthly AEWR of $1,584.22, the agreed-
upon collective bargaining wage, or the applicable minimum wage 
imposed by Federal or State legislation or judicial action, at the 
time work is performed on or after the effective date of this 
notice.
