How ours earn on compatriots-illegal immigrants in America
Announcement in the Russian-speaking group of California: “Nanny. From $ 2300 a month. " It is under such conditions that a governess is often sought. What is the catch here?
As a rule, such a vacancy is offered either by an agency or by a person who “sells” the nanny directly to the family for $ 5000-6000. As a result, while she calms someone restless child, the conditional Marina or agency receives $ 2700-3700. Passive income or what to call it?
The group immediately pounced on the freshly baked employer: “Work for these pennies yourself!” Do you want a slave for yourself ?! ”
Indeed, for such work an adequate payment in America, and more precisely in California, is $ 5000. This is an average income, by the standards of the solar state.
The trouble is that such work is not limited to the functions of a nanny. New functions can be added already in the process, when a woman has already moved to the family.
As a rule, you still need to cook, clean, go to the store. A kind of sorceress, with one hand wiping the dust from someone's TV, with the other - stirring soup, with the third - rocking the baby.

Therefore, the anger of compatriots about payment is very understandable. It also revolts me. But there is a downside. If we are talking about hiring (in a company or even a family), then the person must have a work permit. Otherwise, the Americans simply won’t take it. Perhaps there are precedents, but this phenomenon is rare. They don’t like to take risks in everything that concerns the law. Therefore, our woman without documents will not be able to get anywhere.
And here compatriots come to the rescue. I agree, $ 2300 for independent living in California is very small.

However, she does not need to pay for housing, food is often also included in this amount. As a result, the girl immediately disappears two major items of expenditure: in the "golden" state of America this will come out at $ 1700-3000, depending on the city where housing will be rented.
As a result, she receives $ 2300-2500 on her hands. Taxes from them also do not pay. One “but”: employment can be 24/7, and the day off can only be dreamed of. And yes, it is forbidden by US law to hire a person who stays in the country on a tourist visa.
I must say right away that I do not blame people who agree to such conditions. In urgent need, a difficult situation, unfortunately, there are not many options. So the second side itself agrees to this option. And quite a few women write in groups themselves: “I am looking for work for the cache, with accommodation,” realizing that under such conditions, compatriots do not favor a salary of the same $ 5000.
