There are many who leave the land hoping for a better future. Some of them share their experience on social networks and compare working abroad with what they get in their native place.
This is the case Evie Rojas, an Argentinian user, has been living in Italy with her husband for some time. He went viral on TikTok after showing off everything he bought at a supermarket and revealing how many days he had to work for a month’s worth of food.
“Many people were skeptical about how much we spent on food per month in Italy, mainly family and friends,”, the young woman began to say as she toured the establishment and saw the cart filling up. Among the products you can see Pasta, meat, soft drinks, cookies, preserves, vegetables, dairy products and some frozen.
“I made this video so you can see how much we can buy. Being two people, we calculate that all of this is enough for two and a half weeks, almost three, depending on how much we eat.He assured when he reached the box.
