I'm from America. I'm thinking about skipping college or just going for a year or two and then heading England to live. And I was wondering, how are jobs there? I mean like wages, hours, and availability.

depends really, on where you are thinking of living.

Yeah I was also wondering about an area to live. Not too costly, but near a city. I don't know what kind of job. Probably whatever there is.

You'll have to compete with the poles.

Working abroad is complex if you don't have any qualifications. You'll need a working visa, which is very hard to get hold of if your not in an industry where we have a shortage of staff.

Or maybe a city job like a garbageman or bus driver. I just feel like the US has nothing to offer me. If England is an Epic Fail ,then I hate to think what the US is.

well, if you wanna do labouring, then you'll have to GRAFT.
seriously, the poles have the all the manual labour in england locked down because they work hard for **** all money.

if you wanna move near a city, dont bother with london unless you know you have a job. the cost of living will cripple you and you wont be able to get a house on anything other than the ****tiest estates.

If you can speak Spanish you'd have more luck working somewhere with tourists, like Spain. If you're look for full-time employment while living here it'll be difficult for you.

The power to feel with others give.

Funny, that's the same with me, except with the UK! Jobs here are like rocking horse shit, and once you've got one you're taxed into the ground, and prices are sickeningly high compared to the US and Europe anyhow.


If England is an Epic Fail ,then I hate to think what the US is.


You've got it easier than you think.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

just remember £1 = $2 or so

and work is easy to get about spring and about now with the minimum wage for 18+ about £5.40 or something (over $10)

Britain is just a less hyped less obese and less ignorant version of america (BUT WE WERE HERE FIRST :p)G'Night
