Managing Partner Michael Wildes was recently quoted in a Wall Street Journal posting regarding a recent proposal to allow work authorization for spouses of H-1B visa holders.
In the article, which appears in the India Real Time page of the Wall Street Journal’s web site, Michael is quoted as saying that this “would be a tremendous benefit to young, hard-working families who could certainly benefit from a second income. It is foolish to not accommodate these talented professionals.”
In our opinion, this is long overdue and should become a reality. One of underlying tenets of the H-1B visa program is to ensure that foreign workers and U.S. citizen workers are treated equally, so to afford one the freedom and flexibility of a working spouse while denying it to the other is against the very spirit of our Immigration system.
