When looking for a job, people will think about what type of job is best and what kind of good job can be found by individuals. In the midst of the worst job market in 30 years, many would assume that Americans' top concern right now is having a job and being able to keep it. No, according to a survey conducted by CNN and Paycheck, Americans consider the best jobs to be challenging, exciting, flexible and stable.

Are there any Poles living in the United States? What do you do for a living?

Working in the Healthcare field provides many job opportunities. You can easily find a job in most locations. If you like to travel you can sign up with an agency to work in a variety of states. Also, would not believe any survey conducted by CNN--known as fake news here.

Most immigrants and even Poles live a normal lifestyle with 15/30 yr house mortgage,car loans etc,work harder then native Americans(Ofcourse thinking they have achieved the American dream).The smart ones are there who do way above average and live the real American dream,but that is in case of all immigrants.I have to admit that money is still in the US,even in a gas pumping job or being a partner in a billion $ company.

If youre willing to work and are motivated there are plenty of opportunities still in the USA.

Actually, I dont know of any Poles that are slackers. They all have jobs and do very well from what I have seen. They dont live in economically depressed areas of Chicago anymore and have moved out to the more affluent suburbs.

US,even in a gas pumping job

Probably pays more than a teaching job in Warsaw

would not believe any survey conducted by CNN--known as fake news here.

Turn that CNN nonsense off already.

I've been working in sales since I was 18 and I love it - the thrill of closing a deal, making a nice commission check, clients love seeing you when you stop by, traveling, wine and dining clients, and no two days are really the same as with most office type jobs. Plus if you know your **** the clients really value your time since you're acting as a consultant helping to improve their business.

I also make some money on the side doing home remodeling, flipping cars, and some other side hustles. A lot of Polish people are in the construction trades, but not so much the millennials and younger generations. I was part of that last generation that didn't mind working with their hands but the younger Poles avoid those jobs like the plague even though they tend to pay far better than your average corporate 9-5.

Everyone here knows Poles are Black Market low ballers from way back! It goes deep into their Communist Era heritage.

When in the US decades ago, I was a roof maintanance worker, waiter, nurse`s aid and locksmith. I also ran English classes for Polish immigrants. That was a good opportunity to gain a lot of experience and find out what you really want to do in life so eventually I decided to stick to education as the funniest of all. . :):):)

I seen some horrible construction hack jobs done by Polish workers.. Dont hire any of them that just got off the boat that cant read our measurements correctly and avoid all electricians or plumbers...lol There are some decent companies, the ones that have been in business for a long time.

Cheap ????? In what way?

Lyzko is still living in the1050s. lol

It goes deep into their Communist Era heritage.

A lot of them are in auto, Insurance, public adjusting etc.. like Dirk said these millennials dont want to get their hands dirty. Polish contractors will pay Mexicans for cheap labor.

Same throughout most of the industrial world, Joker! This is why Trump's comment about wanting more immigrants to this country from Germany or Norway smacks of the purely brain dead. Without the legion of brown and tans here in the States, nobody could afford goods and services any longer. Sorry to sound cynical, but it's to the benefit of white Trumpists to have a steady flow of Third World labor doing the Difficult Dangerous Dirty jobs, or most businessmen in the US would plain go under.

That's precisely why I don't have a problem with the Latino migrants comign to the USA within reasonable numbers. Unlike say the muslims or blacks coming into Europe, the Latinos actually come here to work, not with the goal of leeching as much off government benefits and welfare leaving the citizens to foot the bill. Also, by large they aren't the ones driving the murder and violent crime rates here - that'd be the blacks in the US according to FBI stats. The Latinos take all the jobs that white people don't want to do anymore. The most vocal ones against immigration are often the ones who made a career out of blue collar trade like say construction, landscaping, auto repair or whatever and can't adapt to the times. For the more entrepreneurial, it's a huge opportunity. You go into a small business whether it's a restaurant, construction company, manufacturing business, body shop, etc. in any major city and it's the Latinos doing the low wage grunt work.

That's because Americans are lazy and way to expensive for what they do. The reputable companies owned by Americans especially like the Irish and Italian guys tend to do nice work but they charge a lot and many of them have a ton of Mexicans and even Polish doing the work. Now though like with our company the Polish guys do the more detailed, fine touch work like laying tiles, installing cabinets, installing countertops, etc. while the Mexicans do the prep work - demolition, drywall, painting, etc. They don't quite have that touch to do real precise high end work that many wealthy home owners demand.

My parents' generation and to a lesser extent my generation are going to be the last generation of "Polish contractors" in the US, that's for sure. One of our family friends runs an insurance company specializing in workers comp and insurance for contractors, real wealthy Polish guy made a lot of money starting his insurance company and catering to the Polish contractors, well he said about 1/2 of the contracts he had on the books compared to 10 years ago either retired, closed their business, moved to another state, moved back to Poland, etc. and very rarely do their kids run the business after them.

Throughout most of the industrialized West aka Western Europe, low ballers from low-wage countries have taken over now probably forty years and counting! Except for only top grade eateries, expecting Scandis, Dutchmen, Germans et al to either sweep, clean or (horrors) serve seems nearly tantamount to cursing them out. The service sector though is not the only affected area.

That's a post-fact rationalization after a surrender. They come here as they wish and we have no balls to stop it because some other Latinos vote. That is why the "within reasonable numbers" argument is so naive as it applies to everything - including a white, clean, and safe neighborhood going black.

Immigrants are a curse with no upside for the host. Japs know it and are willing not to have restaurants, hotels, and pick tomatoes.
