Default Question on my status during H4 to H1 conversion

Please help me in this regard.

I came to US in Sep 2003 using H4 visa. Later in 2004 I applied for H1 visa with two different companies. first one got approved in Oct 2004, second one got approved in Nov 2004. I started working with the second company since Dec 2004.

Now, is it wrong not joining the first company upon approval. Since H1 status starts as soon as visa is approved, have i violated any status rules here by not working with first company at all?. What would be my status since the first H1 was approved and until i started working with second company?
Had i been out of status during the time period between Oct and Nov 2004?

Thank you.

Even if your status changed to H1 in October 2004 and you started working in November 2004 for a second employer following approval for that employer, I would say it is just 30days and would not be an issue in future GC application. Don't worry about it.

What do you mean by that. Is she going to file green card in future?She did not say that. May be she wants to go back to her native country once H1 expires.Am I right? H1 visa are given to stay here temporarily for 6 years not to get green cards.First husbands get green cardsm then spouses get green cards, then their parents and in-laws get green cards. This is why lot of primary H1 people are stuck in the line for past 8-9 years without promotions,salary hikes,buying homes. When there are no job for primary H1s, don't understand why spouses want to work.That's why lot of folks are going back to their native places.Competition wihtin out guys.Its like siblings fighting for same job in a single family.
