- The Department of Homeland Security of USA recently decided to allow spouses of H1B visa holders, who are seeking green cards, to get work authorization.
- It then invited comments on its website on whether to permit the same prompting many, most of them Indians, to respond to the same.
- This has highlighted the plight of those who go abroad to work ‘onsite’ at various IT firms chasing their dreams, leaving behind their family. As spouses are not permitted to work, most of them remain housewives despite being highly qualified and competent.
- Comments have also poured in from American managers urging the govt to provide work authorization.
