Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

To sgnj5986

I was so tempted to respond to your ignorance and illogical argumentthat I registered in this forum and this is my first post here.
Firstly, you recommend that the best way to save American jobs is to kill competition. Why don't we make America a closed economy then, closed to all foreign competition ?
Secondly, why are the dependents of GC holders allowed to work ? Isn't that an easy way out for them too ? You miss the point that here we are talking of people whose GCs have already been approved but due to huge backlogs, they are denied the same rights that people from other countries have.
Thirdly, yes, in most cases H4 spouses are highly qualified, so qualified that they don't see the point of getting another degree just for the heck of it. I can say from personal experience that I'm highly qualified with a top European degree but I just got unlucky in the H1 lottery. I'm sure that there are many like me. I came back to my home country to work because I have a supportive spouse but not all women are as lucky.
As to your question about why people come on an H4 when they know the implications, all I can say is that you should be the best person to understand that (you mentioned how you came to the US, being from a very poor family). People come here with a lot of hope and they are ready to struggle. The problem is that it is not a level playing field as it used to be 10 years back. With the current H1 shortage situation, and the April to Oct rule for a new H1, it is almost impossible to get a sponsor. An EAD doesn't guarantee a job, it just puts you on a level playing field. The smartest person will still win.
Lastly, if the whole purpose is to build a nation with the smartest immigrants, the current H4 situation is only acting as a deterrant to that by setting the stage for a reverse brain drain of qualified H1s or creating a smart but unhappy and dissatisfied set of H1s who lose the motivation to work when they see their spouses struggling to have a career of their own.
