    I feared so, that means there is no advantage for H1b holder. If H1b holder loss the job, then there are total 2 jobs loss. LOL

    Yes, the rule clearly states that its main purpose is to provide incentives to the H1B/H4 family not to leave the GC process simply because the H4 cannot work. The status of H1B still remains the same.

    Not just that, the companies now have more workers in the pool and they don't have to sponsor H1B visas .

    h1b will still be required as the market is large enough to assimilate all , most h4's may not end up in IT or high skilled market , most of are also qualified to do jobs but many of them haven't been in job market for years which may work against them.
    The truth is there may be a large number that will fake resume like some of h1b workers with 5 + years of experience or 7+ years of experience in QA or BA and try to get on contracts. But fortunately some companies are getting smarter and doing project verifications. Hopefully the h4 who get EAD will try to be ethical and not lie on the resumes.

    That is exactly what I fear as well. More EADs in the market and many companies prefer EAD over H1B visa holders. Hope companies do the due diligence in monitoring fake resumes as well.

    H-4 EADs are going to be granted for the duration of the H-1Bs authorized stay. Given that an employer of an H-4 has no say as to how long the H-4 will be given work authorization, I don't see this as a serious threat to the employment of people working in full time jobs.

    It looks like long delay is possibility for DACA/DAPA extension. The appeal comes for hearing at May 2015 and it may take end of year to get some thing in Appeals court. Then Supreme court.Delay beyond 2016 will have good chance that DACA/DAPA extension may not be possible by Executive action.
