Who work and how much Russian-speaking immigrants in the USA receive without experience
“I have been to the USA 10 times and almost every year I come there for the summer. I want to talk about newly arrived Russian immigrants, as well as about where they work and how much they earn, ”writes the author of the blog“ America under the microscope ”on Yandex Zen.
Next - from the first person.
In Russia there is a certain category of people who want to leave for the States, but remain in the same place where they have been sitting all their lives. According to my observations, only 2-3% of them leave and really try to start life from scratch in the United States. But they immediately encounter the first difficulties - you need to work and earn a living, because no matter how much money you come here, she will leave very quickly.
Where do the visiting Russians who have no work experience in the United States work?
If you do not have experience in the United States or there is very little of it, then you should not hope to leave for a long experience in your native country. It doesn’t matter where you worked in Russia, because in the States this data is not checked. Therefore, you can tell anything, but it does not matter.
In immigrants, only two criteria are valued. The first is skills, the second is hard work and a desire to plow for the amount for which the American will not work.
Suitable work: loader for moving, loader for construction, foreman, waiter, merchandiser in Russian or Mexican stores. If you are lucky, you will be able to get a car wash or a car service, the conditions are better there.
How much do they get
Half or even 60-70% of Russians who have just arrived receive no more than $ 2- $ 000 per month, when it comes to New York. These are real numbers. Keep in mind that renting a one-room apartment in a normal area costs from $ 2 with utilities, laundry and parking. That is, mere pennies remain for a meal, while in the USA, especially in New York, food is very expensive, and good and wholesome is even more expensive.
But once again I want to emphasize that we are talking about newly arrived immigrants with no work experience in the United States, over time, the conditions and level of payment may improve if it is well established.
