This book is a complete guide to daily life in the USA, from finding a home to finding work or even setting up a business from scratch. Live & Work in the USA is illustrated with first-hand accounts from people living in America and is full colour, with numerous maps and photographs throughout. Set out to be easily accessible, each chapter guides you through the practicalities of a move to the USA, from setting up home to finding a job. In particular, it gives advice on renting accommodation, opening the right bank account, finding your ideal home, obtaining a competitive mortgage and making the most of your leisure time. There is also easy access to urgent information such as emergency phone numbers, laws and regulations and healthcare advice. The employment section of the book covers vital information, such as the skills and trades most in demand, permanent, seasonal and temporary work, salaries, working hours and holidays, trade unions and contracts, starting or buying your own business and sources of advice and assistance.
