NON WORKING SPOUSES OF HIGHLY SKILLED IMMIGRANTS CAN NOW WORK AND STIMULATE THEIR PROFESSIONAL AMBITION AND THE US ECONOMY.
Spouses of highly skilled immigrants can start to work as early as 2015.
The Obama administration announced a visa rule revision that allows spouses of some highly skilled immigrants to apply to work in the U.S. as early as 2015. (February 24, 2015).
This revision is ground breaking for spouses of immigrants who were previously only limited to an H-4 visa which did not allow them to obtain a social security number.
Director of USCIS, Leon Rodriguez said the change encourages more highly skilled workers to come to the US on H-1B visa status and apply for green cards to stay. Rodriguez also cited that attracting the workers and their spouses will give a boost to the US economy.
Allowing spouses to work can allow for a much better and enjoyable experience in America. Now non working spouses are no longer relegated to household duties or boredom, they too can stimulate their professional ambition as well as the US Economy.
Having two working parents can provide many benefits to a household including additional income, better relationships, less dependency, and a better experience in America.
