If you don’t get H1B, do companies allow you to continue working until OPT expires?

It's in your best interest to not fall into the h1b/green card trap unless you were not born in India or China, or have plans to marry a green card holder or a citizen. Move elsewhere. Making less money is so much better than feeling hopeless and trapped.

It’s not sunk cost...the more you’ve invested into the system, the move you’ve become entangled in it too. So your decision to stay or leave now involves cost of uprooting a lot of things/ people vs. staying in a trapped situation.

Yes, I don’t see a reason for them to not allow you to continue if they hired you on OPT in the first place
