The operative phrase is *Non-Immigrant* Worker. An immigrant,
technically, is a person with a "Green Card" or Permanent Resident
rights or a newly minted citizen. Us H1 folk can't vote, can't do
'nuffin but pay taxes, speeding tickets, and auto insurance. [Yes, I
used to live in New Jersey; why?] Actually, that's true of the Green
Card folks, too. Though they *can* legally make campaign contributions.
Can you say taxation wi'out representation boys and girls?

I will g,d,r before Eric bounces me. [There's useful info in the next
para Oh Master of the List! honest! :|]

FWIW: H4 is for dependents of H1s. Like those spouses of programmers
someone was referring to. You can't work on it -- or at least, you can't
get paid for work you do ;). H1A, I believe, is for exceptional folks
like actors, etc. H2 and 3, I believe, are training, and suchlike. L1 is
intracompany transfer.
