The wife and I really want to move to Uruaguay and start a new life there. We are currently living in South Africa. What would be the first steps for us to take before we take the gamble and leave our jobs here?

Sorry but where are we immune to fiduciary incompetence? Surely not in the USA these days.

In UY more than half the population either works for the Gov’t or is covered by a union and they all get cost of living increases. Actually supposedly far more than that all get those increases with even domestic help getting routine cost of living adjustments. Like rent increases, salary increases are built in. As is the Social costs of BPS, an extra month’s salary a year and other things like low cost health service that minimum wage workers in the US could only dream about.

Nafta (gasoline) went up in price not long ago and now LP is going up 7,8%, as well as increases in OSE and UTE. This 7.8% figure is said to be the inflation rate, but the wages are not increasing at this rate. The workforce in Uruguay is staring down the barrel of a global economy and are paid third world compensation as jobs fly to Asia. This does not bode well for immigrant workers or for social stability and tranquility. The two things Uruguayans tell me that they consistently worry about are rising cost of living and rising "inseguridad". "Estamos Fritos!!" The gap between wages and inflation cannot continue to widen if we are all to have a semblance of Tranqui' in our day to day lives. Uruguay is economically more stable than its' neighbors, but unfortunately, is nowhere near immune to fiduciary incompetence.
