Help on how to get a blue collar job outside my homecountry(Brazil)

Reddit View
August 27, 2015

I am 22 years old and live in Brazil. I worked online for the last 3 years and decided I hate being all the time in computers, smartphones or offices: it destroyed me. I want to try some "manual labor" thing. In here the pay is shit for this kind of thing, though.

Is there any way to get one of these tough/ but goodpaying jobs outside my country? My US visa is tourist only. I am willing to go through training and to face physically tough work.

Blue collar is tough in USA, all our blue collar manufacturing jobs are in China, Mexico, and Brazil.

what about oil drilling?

[–]justbrowsingkthanks0 points1 point  (4 children) | Copy

It was booming in the USA because fracking technology made it possible to tap huge reserves in the the dakotas, ohio, and other areas. In fact fracking saved Ohio from utter economic disaster. But now that the price has dropped below the cost to pull oil that deep out of the ground it's slowed. It'll pick up again when the price rises.

But I have to think there are more oil jobs in Brazil. There's a lot of reserves there that don't require the deep drill fracking.

as I said, the wages for these kind of jobs are complete shit in Brazil (like 500usd/month).

The median income in Brazil is about $9000 per year last time I checked. 2 people in a home earning $500 usd / month each are above the median and live pretty well.

By pretty well you must mean "living frugally on a shithole for the rest of your life never even able to have kids"

Welcome to the global economy.
