Stupid Non-immigrant Visa rules and Jobs

Cafe Hayek has a nice post explaining the stupidity of preventing F1 VISA holders from doing off-campus work. This prevention gives lie to the claim that policy of restricting immigration is because immigrants might get attracted to Govt. dole.

The same stupid policy is regarding spouses of H1B visa (employer based visa) holders. Why can't spouses of H1B Visa work? There is no danger of them taking advantage of Govt. welfare schemes, since H1B explicitly requires employers to maintain prevailing market wages.

Talk about anti-competitive behavior and trusts!
