living in the usa

i want to move to the us, i live in italy, im 22, getting a green card is almost impossible.

-i have subscribed to the green card lottery
-i have a skilled job that is in high demand (at least in italy) but i've been doing it just 9 months
-i have no relatives in the us

i was thinking of sending a job application to some companies in my field hoping that the job is in demand there too and they're willing to sponsor me, otherwise i could try to come to the us in person and find a job but i doubt itd work, i dont think id get sponsored by randomly going there but idk, more likely to get an illegal job.

or i could marry an american but its not like im going there for 2 weeks and marrying someone.
otherwise there are some job agencies that organize work abroad, idk how it works tho.

          I'm not Italian but you have no idea what life is like in Europe. Our salaries are half or less of the American equivalent and our taxes are double or more. Healthcare can even work out as more expensive if you are a high earner and it's all so overburdened you are lucky to even actually see a doctor. Our homes are rotten centuries old buildings it's illegal to rennovate or at least very expensive to even get permission to do so.
          Yes, some cities are beautiful, where they have not been taken over by turks and Black folk. I don't want to live in a tourist destination cultural theme park full of old people who refuse to allow change.
          I want to have a large detached house with a garage where my children don't have to share a bedroom growing up like I did and where there is a second bathroom so someone can bathe without people coming in to piss. I want to have a yard to work on my home in and grow plants. I want to have privacy and land surrounding me so I can rule my own little kingdom.
          There is no freedom in Europe. You are more likely to have a cctv camera watching you through your window than you are neighbours out of earshot.

          The biggest problem I see in America because yes I've visited extensively is that the food really is terrible in some places. I had no idea how real food deserts were until I walked into a walmart and didn't even see fruit for sale. This depends entirely where you are though because in New York it was very good.

            I think it would be very cool if EU citizenship would grant rights to live and work in the US and vice versa. Americans would get endless supply of slaves and Europe would see endless investments. If the borders were tight in this scenario this would be the economic block to rule the world for a few centuries.

        You are already thinking about it wrong. H1B and illegal immigrants have shit jobs in this country and they are not rich.

        They are in the 'working poor' class and believe me, being apart of the working poor class is way better in Europe than it is in America.

        You need to go big or go home.

        If you can't start an 7 figure side hustle in Europe where health care is fricking free and you have shit tons of time off then you're not going to make it in anywhere.

        America is all about hustle culture, rise and grind bullshit now.

          Is it even legal to work a 2nd job in Italy? That's why the US innovates things and Italy doesn't. The place has crab-in-bucket mentality, if you work harder or figure out a smarter way to do things than someone else, people get mad. They don't even have Uber in Italy because the taxi drivers get mad that someone will outcompete them and go on chimpouts over it.

        This is one of the strong points of the US, but Italy also is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The architecture is also mostly beautiful in Italy too but in the US it is the most soul-crushing in the world unless you are in like Manhattan or San Francisco.
        >-job opportunities
        This is basically the only second strong part of the US. If you can land a remote job and live somewhere else then by all means, but it's not worth living in the US, it is a miserable place. Also that high salary will be gobbled away by insane cost of living.
        >-culture (outdoors, hunting, freedom, etc in rural parts, i know there are leftists too, independence)
        The US probably has the most soul crushing culture in the world. As an Italian you can't understand how neurotic and dystopian the culture is here. Have you ever wondered why Italians are good at flirting but Americans aren't? It's because there is an extreme social stigma even to talking to women in public in the US, flirting with an American girl in public is seen as almost as bad as whipping your wiener out, I'm not joking.
        >-low population density
        If you want this go to some beautiful small town in Italy. Better food and people, much prettier architecture, much cheaper, etc. Small town America is not like Kansas in the Wizard of Oz, it's basically just empty towns with McDonald's Walmart, junkie fent addicts, and fat people. There are no pretty women at all in these areas, you don't understand. Imagine English genetics + obesity and you'll get an idea.
        >-better laws
        In the US you can't even drink a beer in public, lmao. Also the laws in Italy ensure that the food is not the poison that it is in the US. I guess if you want to shoot guns it's ok for that.

          dude in italy you pay 40% taxes min if youre a poorgay and 50+% if you make a barely decent wage, plus 22% vat, and wages are low so if you go live alone, which most dont do until theyre 30, you have almost no disposable income and if you go out the weekends youve bruned through it already.

          for the bureucracy you dont know how much paperwork and wait time and fees and limitations on what you can do there are to do anything, from simpler shit like driving license for car or bike to opening a small business

          also the culture of the people in italy is to get muh safe job and stay there forever, understandable given the situation but i dont appreciate it, plus italians are almost all urbanites and i dont like that much, but its not that big a deal

            That one is actually true. Where I live in the US you can get arrested just for having a beer at the beach. It's not the end of the world but it is stupid and soul crushing when you see europeans enjoying themselves freely doing something that isn't harming anyone. Look on wikipedia about who the puritans were and what they believed. Their history still heavily influences American culture today.
            Italy IS one of the least business friendly countries in europe though. That is 100% correct. And their justice system is arbitrary and backwards. There's a reason most multinationals don't put their european HQ there.
            European policies like VAT also discourage you from being a consoomer but in the US its heavily encouraged by both the culture and the tax code to buy stupid shit.

            they dont exist as they do in the us, theres only reserves of retired officers to my knowldedge, and anyway nothing like the us where you can do the army part time.

            Try to get into the US on any kind of permanent employment visa then join the military. Italians are eligible for the Diversity Visa lottery and have pretty good odds since not a lot apply, you should apply for it every year.

          This is all in their heads, though, and won't apply to a decent-looking laid-back Italian. Unless you're on a college campus or something there's almost no risk of blowback for violating any of the absurd feminist social expectations.

          You basically need to get a sponsor for work, problem is you won't get one at only 9 months of experience. Keep playing the lottery and keep trying to get sponsors. If your job is actually high skill (not bullshit social media management) then you can hopefully get something and come in that way then try to angle for permanent residence. You'll want to speak to a lawyer too to make sure that you don't have any issues that can frick up your stay.

          >the architecture is bad
          Then don't go for architecture and go for natural beauty. I live in Salt Lake for a reason and it's because I don't give a shit about no architecture when it means gorgeous mountains everywhere I look.

          You are an autistic loser with zero social skills who never interacts with anyone outside, ever. There is literally no issue whatsoever talking to anyone, man or woman, out in public. You'd know this if you weren't terminally online. Your next travel destination should be your nearest downtown area because god damn you need to touch grass after saying this nonsense.

          I am actually a software engineer and that 200k salary only comes with 2 weeks of PTO and 60-80hr work weeks, and shit healthcare.

          Italians get paid less because they work less.

          >I have to actually work a lot to receive a big salary!
          Around 6-7% of all US households make over 200k, earning that as a single man puts you in the beyond fricking rich category. So yeah, if you're earning what two of the top earners combined make on your own, you're going to haul ass for it.

            Alternately, the social violation is a come-on from a leering feral shitskin, women are not allowed to complain about swarthies this so instead they take it out on the one beta nerdboy who timidly says 'hi' in the coffee shop.

          homie wtf are you on about, most of the good dates I've gone on have been the result of talking to a girl in public. Talking to strangers is highly normalized in the US compared to many european countries where people will just look at you in bewilderment or annoyance if you try to strike up a conversation with them at a cafe or whatever

          Not OP but this is probably one of the main reasons I'm going to immigrate to the US. People really underestimate how much of a selling point this can be for people, and the EU has lost out on that demographic big time.

              said. Between the ever increasing laws regarding things like speech, political activism, private ownership of arms (and general self defense), increasing centralization and so on, the EU (Or UK, or any EFTA countries) just isn't really for me. Those things aren't going to change anytime soon because of what the average Euro is like, so I'd rather hedge my bets with the US.

        As a well-off young male you will see ZERO result from the 30% of your income that goes into taxes somehow, except roads. No public safety, no public transit, no public healthcare, no public university, so this is more ideological (do I want private or public services) than practical
        >culture
        There are many, many unlikeable cultures in America, friend...
        >better laws
        Pretty broad but a few are terrible:
        borderless taxation means if you're a US citizen you still pay taxes if you live overseas
        you have no protection from warantless search anymore
        drug laws are very, very strict and moronic in some places
        the US has nearly the highest amount of regulation around housing causing some of the highest housing prices in the world
        (similar to EU but still) paternity tests will not absolve you of child support, you can get removed from the labor force even if a rape charge is false

        Lastly, unless you plan to exercise or need these freedoms like going outdoors, hunting, owning a gun, starting a business, speaking very freely, etc, then you are larping and it won't be worth your time to go to the US.

        If you are fine with the drawbacks and do plan to the utmost to engage in activities you only can in the US, then endeavor to move there and try it out. If not, figure yourself out before assuming that moving will fix your life.

          23 year old here, mostly in the same situation but I bought a house last year at 3.5% interest so I'm going to be saving up cash while fixing it up to sell for more later. My hope is to sell it in 3-5 years and take $150kish to buy a house wherever I want to move to. I'm currently learning Japanese at my local community college(I work full time as an electrician, I just wanted to be in a classroom to practice speaking while I shitpost on /djt/), but I want to learn Spanish once I'm confident and maybe a fourth language, probably something from Eastern Europe or another SEA country. I don't think I'll move to Japan, but it's a fun goal to work towards and I think any skills I pick up along the way will come in useful anywhere I go.

          Patently false, you can find flights as cheap as $40 between major cities in america. I could go to las vegas right now for about $49.
          >taxes suck you lose 30% and won't see it anywhere
          As opposed to europoor where taxes are even higher, wages are lower, public services are shit (how's that waitlist over in bongistan?), cars are unaffordable... You've basically only got cheap uni. As for crime/public safety, if you don't live in Blackville USA you'll be fine. Actually, you can pretty much exclusively avoid crime by just staying away from the non-white parts of town. This is true for Europe too after the rapefugee crisis.
          >laws can be bad, like drug laws
          the US is up there for some of the friendliest drug laws though, almost no other place worldwide is as liberal with it as the west coast.
          >no protection from warrantless searches
          No, it really ends up being that you either tend to waive that right or you get to use the constitution to exclude all evidence obtained from an illegal search. The layman's love of the 4th is ridiculous, as if an entire country wants criminals to go free because "sorry need a warrant after my drug dog says you're hauling coke in the trunk, you're free to go now." There's no better place to be criminally prosecuted than america either.

        Don't confuse "predatory" with the roastie mix of seething and projection. And even then, "Peter Pan" accusations are far more common than "predatory." Jealous roasties aging out get mad at eligible bachelors in their age bracket giving attention to young girls barely out of college.

        All that said, if your goal is to find a committed life partner, the western girls in the 18-23 range tend to be really flaky and immature. Some are ready to settle but most aren't and are often even more emotional and impulsive than other women. And when you're dating young girls it's easy for hotness to cloud your rational judgement as far as wife and lifetime partner suitability. Roasties massively over-emphasize this point but they aren't entirely wrong. I've known non-zero number of men IRL who married a hot young girl only to wind up divorcing a few years later because the girl turned out to be a really shitty wife.

      • 3 months ago
        Anonymous

        I didn’t read all the posts in this thread but I can share my experience of living illegally in the USA.
        Also European.

        The pros
        You get an experience of a lifetime and depending on where you go you get a true core understanding of Americans and their culture, this is to say you get an education in the ways of American society and the way a lot of things work and how different it is
        You improve your English to the point where natives won’t even know you’re a foreigner

        Cons
        All of them. You’re illegal, it’s hard to find work while illegal, you get no unemployment insurance or any benefits at all so you have to rely on yourself only.
        You also can’t rent, you’re not paying in to social security (under your name) so when the time comes and you’re back in italia you’re going to come up short in years for retirement.
        You can’t drive
        You can’t even ride a bike unless you’re in a place where a lot of people ride bikes (why? Because cops will stop you and ask you what the hell are you doing. Had dozens of interactions with police over this.

        Having said this. I’ll say I have benefited a lot from it on an educational level alone. I returned to my European country and finished high school, got into college, got a home of my own something I never thought I’d be able to do, I’ve done more since I been back than others or myself would have done had I stayed here to begin with because you learn to truly rely on yourself, your grit improves. I’m still as useless as before but ive been able to move forward with my life to levels others my age haven’t been able to because of my experience in the usa. And other than the loved ones I have there I have no other reasons to return. You also develop the understanding that money isn’t all that’s cracked up to be. But anyways I don’t recommend you do it Italianbro.

            dude in italy you pay 40% taxes min if youre a poorgay and 50+% if you make a barely decent wage, plus 22% vat, and wages are low so if you go live alone, which most dont do until theyre 30, you have almost no disposable income and if you go out the weekends youve bruned through it already.

            for the bureucracy you dont know how much paperwork and wait time and fees and limitations on what you can do there are to do anything, from simpler shit like driving license for car or bike to opening a small business

            also the culture of the people in italy is to get muh safe job and stay there forever, understandable given the situation but i dont appreciate it, plus italians are almost all urbanites and i dont like that much, but its not that big a deal

            I have the exact same problem since I have returned. I am on the top fifth percentile of income making between 1200 and 1300 after taxes which is 1700 and my job is hell. Been wanting to go to Ireland which is nice and very much like the USA but there is nowhere to live which makes moving difficult. When I finish my degree which hopefully will do next year maybe my opportunities will improve. For the time being I’m sitting still making 1200 and keeping my apartment up to date. So far this year somehow my gross was 27000 and that is far beyond what most people here get. Ironically it is more than I ever made in the usa

      European employment operates under a very class-oriented assumption, in that "you are Working Class and will always be, and therefore should be comfortable and happy in the first job you ever had". So you get that situation where some minimum wage starter job pays the equivalent of $20 an hour and has 5 weeks holiday, but the catch is you will NEVER get a raise or promotion, so you'll be stuck at that level for the next 40 years until you retire.
      The US doesn't really have such a rigid class system and so our employment works more on the assumption that you can move up the ladder as long as you're willing to put in the grind, so as long as you work smart you can end up with a net worth north of a million dollars by the time you're 45.
      I think the issue is so many young people, especially now, are so dangerously impatient that if they haven't got enough money to afford a Ferrari in cash by the time they're 25 they want to burn society down.

        If you are going to use terms like "European employment" you better make sure what you're saying applies to all of Europe or at least all countries in the EU. That's hardly possible though, so at least say which part of Europe you're referring to.

        The US is the way it is because people like it the way it is. There's no political will to improve public transit in 90% of the US because the majority of people have zero interest whatsoever in using it. It's something neets whine about. I think there could be improvements made with like commuter rail and arguments about public transit bringing black crime to the suburbs are dumb, but otherwise, I like how the US is. Driving and parking are also much better than Italy. Have you been to Italy? Their high speed freeways are great but you have to pay a lot in tolls to use them (somewhat uncommon in the US) gas is expensive, and don't even think about driving in the cities, they're congested, people drive worse than 3rd world SEA monkies and there's few places to park at all.

        San Diego doesn't have a waterfront freeway so idk what you're talking about. It does have a light rail that is... ok. You can go from downtown to the big colleges in the area and a bus connects to the airport. You can also take it to the border with TJ which is kind of cool.

        I wish it was easier for the people who like what the US is like to come here and people who want no guns and free day care to move to the EU. That would solve a lot of problems. It's perfectly rational that people like would OP prefer the US to europe, just like a lot of redditors would be happy to move to the EU.

          yeah so don't drive in cities? this is what I mean when americans cannot even think outside of their perspective. even in the US and canada I prefer taking public transit if it's usable to get to any large event or inside a city and it's often way cheaper due to parking costs. and you are greatly overestimating how much people just love driving so much, they do it because it's the only way to get around, not because it's inherently better or the US is some alien planet separate from the outside world.

            Absolutely nobody wants to go grocery shopping, go pick up their kids from school, and drop off a package at the post office using public transit. Nobody wants to take 3 different bus transfers to get to their place of work. And nobody wants to raise their kids in a population-dense urban shithole for the tradeoff of having access to a crumbling subway station where their kids can be pressed up against homeless drug addicts on their way to the museum.

    I get the sentiment bro and I think it is worth a try for you but you’re gonna be in for a rude awakening. I actually experienced the reverse of this as a muttimerican. I romanticized europe for a very long time and finally got the chance to go for 6 weeks. Spent half in France half in northern Italy. I firmly believe that europe has reached the height of “living”. Your buildings, towns, cities are exceptionally beautiful, historical, and human friendly. I understand why Walt Disney modeled his parks after it. We do not have anything like that in the US. Your women are on average more attractive. We have good stock here too but a ton of fatfricks with no class.

    But after a few weeks I started to realize how American I was. Things are so slow in Europe. It’s like an open air museum. If you have any ambition then you will feel trapped there. And that is my first point why it makes sense for you to move to the US. The second is that you have no true wilderness. This may not be important to a lot of people but it is to me. I don’t want to see gondolas and small towns everywhere all the time.

    So America is great for money/ambition and wilderness. We don’t have “culture”. Doesn’t mean there aren’t good people but there isn’t charm to how people live here generally.

      So if you are an ambitious person America is hard to beat. There really is no glass ceiling here.

      On the other hand if you are average then it’s a nightmare. I don’t understand why an average person is here honestly. We do not have the safety nets you guys have in Europe.

      Anyways I think you have valid reasons to give it a shot. You will miss your culture though because there is a charm to Italian life albeit it is slow and is restricted if you are young and bright.

      As someone who has lived across the country I think west coast is generally the best. California will give you access to best geography and weather while slowing you to find a job. From there you can explore the mountain states. Midwest and south are shitholes. East coast is meh compared to west coast.

          In my own experience, Western/Northern Europe is way more expensive than in an important North American city, for about the same quality.
          Quality went downhill in Europe, that’s for sure, especially for the pricr you pay. I say it as an Western European who grew up in restaurants, you now eat better in the US than in Europe nowadays. Restaurants nowadays are absolutely shit compared with 20-30 years ago, while the opposite is happening in the US.
          I am not talking about some flyover city.

          Hotel prices are absolutely raping in Europe, especially in some countries (France, UK).

            I definitely agree regarding food - I never understood all the memes about US food. Every time I was here I was satisfied.

            But I have to take a step back and acknowledge that the last time I was in a major Western European city was 2022, perhaps things changed since then. I was in Antwerp, Rotterdam, Hague, and Barcelona. That was just when the war was beginning. I am in the US right now - a lot might have changed in a year with inflation and all. Here in the US I've been to New York, Boston, and Orlando. I am shocked by how expensive accommodation is. I am being told there are some large cultural events taking place now hiking prices up, so maybe that's one reason. Ubers and food are more pricy than I remember from my prior trips (2018), but still comparable to Europe.

              I think a lot of people were shocked about prices in the US because most people in Europe haven’t been there since at least 2020 because of covid. And the same can be said for Europe from the opposite point of view.

              Food in US, Canada, and Australia have MASSIVELY improved, to the point that I remember having genuinely good meals in those countries, even though great food didn’t come cheap. Even the wine from New World improved a lot.
              The same cannot be said with Europe. I live here, but it has gotten more and more annoying and crazy expensive to get good food, and by that I meant, great meat cuts, great seafood and the likes.

        No one in the US is homeless unless they have a drug or alcohol problem or they are completely insane and refuse medical treatment. You'll find sources that claim otherwise, but the largest homeless study ever conducted in Los Angeles found that 75 percent of the homeless population abused drugs and 74 percent had mental health issues. The cross over was almost 100 percent, meaning they could not find a single homeless person in LA who wasn't either addicted to drugs, insane, or both.

I asked them over dinner later about European opinions on Romanis/Gypsies and they all had VERY strong views, it's funny to me how much Europeans cuck for whatever mainstream progressive idealistic view when they don't have to deal with the consequences but become vitriolic racists when they do. Granted not all in either group are bad but they as a group cause a disproportionate amount of ruckus.

    US has good social mobility regardless of its gini coefficient. That's still the argument and you haven't refuted it. No goalposts have moved.

        What does some unskilled shitskin asylum-seeker from Venezuela have to do with OP? Yes it's true you can't come to the US with literally nothing and homestead your way to a better life or work on the railroad or coal mines to get middle class. Reality still limits mobility hit can't welfare your way to a big home in the suburbs and 2 cars. If you are a lazy shitskin chasing the American dream through handouts, do everyone a favor and go back.

          people have become billionaires after arriving to the USA with pennies almost 100 years ago (Rose Blumkin).

          after all that growth... how much is left? obviously the empire is crumbling, only thing to do is speed it up for the next form (whatever that may be, creative destruction).

    Lmfao, I'm looking to do the total opposite. I'm American, but I can get Italian citizenship via Italy's very lax citizenship-by-ancestry laws (my great-grandparents were from Lucca). I just gotta save up the money to pay some Italian lawyers to make it happen. I want out of the U.S.

    But if you really do want to move to the U.S., tell me which kind of job you have. Maybe I know somebody who could sponsor you? I've helped a Turkish friend of mine get sponsored by an American company.

    I see there’s the golden visa. Needs 1 million investment, either cash and goods. I have a business with goods that are worth more than a million.
    The only annoying thing is the “PLAN to create 10 US jobs”. Plan doesn’t mean HAVE TO, right? My business might require no more than 2-3 employees.
    I mean if moronic chinks can do it there’s no reason I cannot.
    Once you have permanent residency you’re all set right?

    Move to Canada before they shut down their piss poor immigration controls, from there work at an American firm's office in Canada and then get a job transfer to USA. Another way is marrying an American by living in Canada as you'll be much closer to the USA and can arrange a relationship easier.

            They don’t. But Americans who have zero understanding of how immigration policies work believe all this shit. They will claim Mexicans just cross over the border and that Biden let’s them in and they’re given benefits and papers from the start, they’re just illegal because they want to all they need is go to the post office and become legal. Don’t listen to these idiots. No one is in the us military because they need papers.
            You want to work in the USA you need a work visa. And work visas are only good for a single job you can’t look for work after you already have that visa, If you get fired you are also going to have to leave the country.
            What you want is a green card, which you can’t get unless you have training that requires at least four or five years of education plus five years of experience and a recommendation from your boss OR job in a field (specified by the uscis) that requires so many years of training and experience and so on. It is worth for you to check this list and get a green card process started or looking into it if you’d like.
            >just marry a us woman
            This doesn’t work like people think it does.
            The minimum requirements are that the person who is sponsoring you has to make 125% (or is it 135%?) income above the poverty line. Which translates into having to make over 40k a year to sponsor you. Sponsoring a spouse takes at least a year of going through the process, will cost at least six thousand in filling fees and what not and even after that it is not guaranteed that they will approve you.
            Australia may be the place you should consider.

              They get some bullshit job that they hate to secure a temp visa for 2 years and enlist as soon as they are here. Once you enlist you are locked in for American citizenship unless you frick up royal. Military service have been a numero uno path to US citizenship for decades. The US Navy has an entire sub group of people who do this exact thing, their cooks and supply clerks, and they are dubbed the Philippino Mafia.
