:iagreeDear All: I know there are numerous people who are on H4 visa here in the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">USA</st1lace></st1:country-region> and struggling to get out of home and work. All tied up in 4 walls only coz H4 visa holders do not have the authorization to work. Come on guys, when L2 dependant visa holders can get an EAD and permit to work then why cant H4 dependants get the same privilege ? Is this not a discrimination? Are we not being deprived of the rights that we should be getting? Are we doing justice to our careers? Aren’t 90% of H4 visa holders doctors, engineers, lawyers, MBA’s?? Are we not ruining our careers ? Are we not loosing our self esteem and independence ? are we not highly qualified and skilled to take up challenging jobs in the <st1lace w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">US</st1:country-region></st1lace> ? We all know what it is with the H1B visa. In such a scenario how can we even expect some professional life for ourselves. But are the law makers aware of this situation of ours ? Laws are amended only when they are put forward and witnessed as a problem and issue of concern. Does the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1lace w:st="on">US</st1lace></st1:country-region> government know about this ? Does US know that it has immense store house of talent in the form of H4 visa holders ? It has to change. H4’s should get some kinda reform else we will ruin our careers and life.
