Hello, I am about to graduate from a US college in a week. I have an F-1 student visa, which gives me the right to work for a year in the US. After one year, I have to apply for a H-1b visa to continue working. My question is, if I work for a prop firm where I have to contribute a minimum amount of capital and get paid no salary, would that be classified as "employment" by the government? Or can I just do it without a work permit and be in the US with a visitors visa (which I also have). I am very confused about the legal relationship between prop trading (not remote) and visa status. I appreciate your help.
