I live in San Cristóbal, a city in the border between Venezuela and Colombia. Since the economy in Venezuela is broken at every level, my family and I saved our money in Colombian Banks.(We have the two citizens/nationalities) We can't totally move to Colombia yet because a few reasons but hey at least our money doesn't melt with the Venezuelan inflation... So yes.


Wow, Colombia in the house ! GOOD LUCK with your saving bro !

Probably but for how much and where ?


These are 2 important questions that would also affect my decision.


So I'm from Montreal Canada and i work for 30$/hour . Lets say my employer suggest me to move to Texas for promotion that's gonna pay me for 70$/hour. Hell yeah i would do it ! What about you


Well I work at Dairy Queen and my commute is 10 minutes, and I get paid 10$ an hour. If they said I would get paid 12.50$, but for a 20 minute longer commute. I would take it. I also have to acknowledge at the fact that Im not even a legal adult.

lol I escaped from my home country in search for money and development.
If I can get more money and I'm fine with the job, I could even travel to an island in the middle of nowhere.

Well, I work in Beijing, in a job that flies me and my wife home for summer vacation every year. The cost of food (except for western food), transport and lots of things is lower and my good sized (for Beijing) apartment is subsidized rent. It'd have to be not just more money, it'd have to be an upgrade in standard of living.

OTOH, the polluted air sucks, so the same cost of living but clean air could well swing it.

If I have NBA player-like lifestyle, fame and fortune, sure why not.

I'll be in different states every two to three days for 8 months every year.

Yes I would, as long as it was possible for my boyfriend to come to. It would be so awesome if I was making SO much more that I could bring my whole family with me

I can dream

There are many factors to take into consideration before deciding "yes". You need to consider cost of living expense, life quality at the new location. Sometimes being where you are presently with rate of pay, whether higher, level, lower is the better option.

Example: back in the late '80's I knew a railroad engineer who relocated to Northwest Arkansas from his hometown metro area near Cleveland, Ohio. In Ohio his gross pay was $54K USD while residing with the folks in Arkansas only grossed $23K. Looking at the difference mathematically it sounded like the kiss of death downward spiral of ageism had taken effect with his choice to relocate. However, according to him, the taxes for everything in Arkansas was far less than Cleveland, Ohio and the quality of life was exponentially better. Crime, taxes, urban living more than ate up the $30K "bonus" residing in Ohio. Living up there (depending on where near Cleveland) was similar to accommodating urban, moral decay. A lot of his health issues improved after he left Ohio.

There are trade-offs. Do factor in all of them before you decide to accept.
