What people need to know is that H4 EAD just gives a permission to find work. To go out there, put themselves in the job market, fight the competition and secure a job is totally the responsibility of an individual. And the struggle to find a foothold is real. While many women find my position inspiring and ask me how I got where I am today, let me tell you my struggle was real, just like many, many other women. I came to the US on a dependent visa, too. I am engineer from IIT Kharagpur and have master’s in electrical engineering from Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. I had successful career as a team lead in CISCO back in Bangalore, India, prior to coming here. Once here, I found myself struggling to find a job. In Chicago, where my husband was posted, I began applying for jobs, but would not find jobs matching up to my experience. Disappointed, I began looking for simple coding jobs even though I am a network software developer – a very niche and specialized field. But still I found little luck. I decided to shift to Bay Area with my daughter, while my husband was still in Chicago, to increase my chances of finding work, but all I got was small consulting jobs. Employers were more concerned about my job gap than my capabilities. So, yes, to begin my career, once again in America, I had to start from the level of a fresh college graduate despite having a decade-long promising career. After working in many roles and many years, I finally got a company that offered to convert my dependent L2 visa to an H-1B. But to get there was a long, arduous journey. And this is the story of many other women, too. It is important for everyone to know that while women themselves do compromise a bit on their careers when they choose to come with their spouses, the Trump administration’s effort to put an end to their careers legally is not justified.
not one single mention about how the flood of non-immigrant guest workers, both male and female has put an end to the American citizens careers, which wasn’t justified.
Folks, in a industry where we only create about 75,000 jobs per year on average, and we import on a H-1B visa alone the following numbers, not counting the other flavors of non-immigrant guest worker visas.

Yes, but they’re only one reason companies prefer to hire foreign workers. By offshoring, firms can also sidestep more-stringent U.S. workplace and environmental regulations, and take advantage of foreign government subsidies designed to lure foreign investment. They can also tap a labor pool that in many cases is better versed in math and science than the U.S. workforce is. Thus, offshoring has evolved from a simple matter of cutting labor costs to “a multidimensional value proposition,” as the Conference Board’s Ton Heijmen puts it. Part of the value is that foreign workers can be required to work under conditions that would be illegal in the U.S. In Shenzhen, China, for example, Foxconn, the subsidiary of a Taiwanese company, employs 250,000 people to assemble iPods and iPhones for Apple, working long, monotonous days with a handful of timed bathroom breaks. Foxconn workers earn an average wage of $292 a month. Last year 18 Foxconn employees at the Shenzhen complex attempted suicide, 14 successfully.
