I got laid off. Unfortunately I’m outside USA on H1 visa expiring 2024. Can I still enter USA with valid visa but unemployed? Do they check if my employment is current or only check visa to let me in? Please help as I’m with a baby.

6 months pregnant and just laid off. And 40% of my severance was just taken in taxes .. I just spoke with paid family leave and I no longer qualify even though I had been paying into the program (thanks NY).. I already applied for unemployment but doctors are telling me I’ve got 10-14 weeks left in this pregnancy.. so stressed having twins and being unemployed, no maternity leave, no paychecks coming in, and I’ve been applying but not a single interview.. just ugh. 😭

Baby furniture. What is everyone doing? FTM and trying to figure out if it’s worth investing in very expensive nursery furniture. We were looking at the Natart furniture collection and the Silva collections. These both come in at about $2000-$2400. The furniture is high quality and grows with the child. Alternatively I could go the lower end route at get everything for like $800. Is that wise? I hear horror stories about low quality and paint chipping from the baby teething on the crib.

Always wondered if people got actually fired for working abroad during the pandemic. It honestly makes no sense, partners travel internationally all the time does that mean the whole data privacy and tax situation does not apply to them?
