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.
