Given that politicians on the left continue to out-outrage one another by proclaiming that “America was never great,” it may be worth asking the rest of the world why they see the United States as the best place to work in the world?
However, as Statista’s Niall McCarthy notes, around the world, the desire to move between countries for work reasons is becoming less desirable.
The Boston Consulting Group conducted a major survey of 366,000 people across 197 countries about labor trends and work preferences. 57 percent of those polled said they would move abroad for work, a decline on 2014’s 64 percent when the question was last asked.
The developing world had the highest desire for a relocation abroad with 90 percent of India’s repondents and 70 percent of people in Brazil saying they would be willing to move to another country for the right job.
In 2014, the U.S. was named the most popular work destination worldwide and it remains in top-position this year. 34 percent of the survey’s respondents said they would be willing to move to the U.S. for work reasons.
