No, not really, if you are eligible for change of status to H-2B visa in the US, that is.

I am not sure if your employer understands requirements for H2B visa, but with a limitation on a number of visas issued, you are likely to get your asylum-based EAD earlier.

Not necessarily, but it is not clear that your current status could permit you to seek H-2B status. Consult with an attorney.

How are you going to be eligible for a H!B visa if your authorized stay of your prior visa has lapsed and you filed for asylum still with out legal ability to be employed in the U.S.?
