does living abroad really means working a lot?

recently i've had a talk with a second cousin via facebook and she mentioned that one has to do a lot of things there in canada. quite understandable since house help abroad is sooo expensive. however, i've been wondering on the working to earn a living side of it. does one really have to at least have two jobs to be able to live comfortably there?

i have relatives in the USA and they told me that life in the USA is comfortable compared to our life here since there are lots of jobs that you can have. But living in the USA means you have to work three different jobs at least to live a life of comfort since household help is expensive and you will do the chores yourself. Americans are workhaholic by nature so you need to be able to be at par with the way they work.

cost of living is quite high in other countries.a lot of our kababayans have 2 or 3 jobs to support themselves and their families back in the Philippines.it is not eary,but Filipinos by nature are resilient and will do everything for their families.if given the opportunity I'll work abroad so I can help my family and save for myself.
