Desemprego de imigrantes diminui nos EUA e Brasileiros ganham espaço

Os Estados Unidos vivem sua menor taxa de desocupação em quase 50 anos e os imigrantes estão tirando proveito deste cenário. Em junho deste ano, a economia americana gerou 224 mil empregos, conforme estudo divulgado pelo Bureau of Labor Statistics nos EUA, o que incluiu postos para trabalhadores vindos do exterior, com destaque para brasileiros.

Segundo dados da pesquisa, em 2018 havia 28.2 milhões de pessoas nascidas no exterior integrando a força de trabalho dos EUA, o que significa 17.4% do total. Para o especialista em negócios internacionais, André Duek, que reside e investiga o mercado americano há quase 10 anos, esse contexto favorece o desempenho de brasileiros, que, com sua criatividade e perfil empreendedor, têm garantido mais espaço na terra do tio Sam.

“O sucesso de toda grande empresa depende, e muito, da força de trabalho que ela nutre. Em um país continental como os EUA e tão diverso do ponto de vista de imigração, o mercado está se adaptando esta globalização de talentos profissionais. Sem dúvida, o perfil do brasileiro faz sucesso, pois este já chega no mercado americano disposto a dominar o inglês e muitas vezes o espanhol, com um perfil criativo e comunicativo”, pondera Duek.

Empregos ‘Made in Brazil’

Dados do Mapa Bilateral de Investimentos Brasil/USA 2019, desenvolvido pela Apex-Brasil em parceria com o Brazil-US Business Council e Amcham Brasil, divulgado este ano, mostram também uma alta na geração de empregos pelas empresas brasileiras presentes nos EUA. Empreendendo em diferentes setores como, metais, comércio atacadista e instituições financeiras, as afiliadas brasileiras empregaram 74.200 funcionários nos Estados Unidos em 2015 – dado mais recente divulgado até agora.

De 2009 a 2015, as empresas brasileiras nos Estados Unidos venderam significativamente mais internamente e geraram mais valor agregado nos Estados Unidos em comparação com outras economias, como Índia, China, Rússia e México. O Brasil foi o segundo país que mais gerou empregos, atrás apenas do México. Empresas brasileiras, em 2015, detinham $102.2 bilhões em ativos nos Estados Unidos, o dobro de 2009.

“O recente posicionamento de empresas brasileiras no mercado americano, de forma mais planejada e perene, garantiu uma longevidade maior às iniciativas. Mais negócios consolidados, mais vagas de trabalho. É uma matemática exata que favorece a geração de empregos”, pondera André Duek, que auxilia na implementação estratégica de empresas no exterior.

Brasileiros mais escolarizados

De acordo com a pesquisa do Bureau, o percentual de estrangeiros que integrava o mercado de trabalho nos EUA e possuíam um diploma de bacharel ou formação superior foi de 36.9%. Os que detinham diploma de ensino médio registraram 25.1% percentual, muito próximo ao de americanos nativos com diploma e ensino médio de 25.6%.

“A oferta de vistos para profissionais estrangeiros altamente qualificados é uma das lógicas seguidas pelo governo americano para impulsionar o mercado com a utilização de mão de obra profissional vinda de fora. Talentos profissionais que não serão desperdiçados pela maior economia do mundo que precisa seguir crescendo”, pondera Duek.

Outro detalhe mostrado pelo estudo é que homens estrangeiros representaram 77.9% da mão de obra, enquanto nativos representaram 67.3%. A presença de mulheres estrangeiras no mercado de trabalho, no entanto, foi menor que a de americanas nativas, sendo 54.3% e 57.6% respectivamente.

Vistos de trabalho

Os Estados Unidos oferecem diversos vistos para profissionais que desejam ingressar no mercado. O visto H1-B, por exemplo, é direcionado para trabalhadores estrangeiros qualificados com emprego temporário nos EUA. Profissionais especializados em áreas como TI, finanças, contabilidade, arquitetura, engenharia, matemática, ciências, medicina, entre outras, podem se valer deste visto.

Os vistos H2-A são reservados para trabalhadores agrícolas estrangeiros temporariamente. Já o visto H-2B destina-se a trabalhadores temporários estrangeiros em campos não agrícolas para trabalhar nos Estados Unidos, como motoristas de caminhão, suporte de esqui, hotéis, resorts de praia ou parques de diversões. Os vistos P são usados, principalmente por artistas e atletas que irão aos EUA para compromissos temporários.

Atuante há 33 anos no mercado nacional e internacional, André Duek é um empresário com experiência na gestão de grandes empresas no Brasil como as marcas de moda Triton, Forum e Tufi Duek. Nos EUA há 7 anos, consolidou, entre vários negócios de sucesso, a Duek Realty que é uma boutique imobiliária e a primeira empresa de locação de motorhomes gerida por brasileiros no país, a Duek Motorhomes. Fora do escopo empresarial, ainda foi comentarista esportivo nos canais ESPN Brasil, no grupo Bandeirantes e atualmente na plataforma global de streaming digital DAZN.

Brickell’s new hot spot opens this summer on the Miami River

There’s a new place to eat and drink and socialize in Brickell this summer — and it’s got a waterfront view.

The Riverside development, a venue with 120,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, is scheduled to open in July on the Miami River in the beating, sweaty heart of downtown Miami.

The development, at Fifth Street and South Miami Avenue, will be home to six different restaurants, a tap room, beer garden and cafe and an event space for community use. A waterfront boardwalk will connect the venue to Brickell Avenue, and the boardwalk along the South Miami Avenue Bridge will be extended with an addition: art installations by Jeffrey Barone.

“In the concrete jungle that is Brickell, we wanted to create a unique oasis that will be anchored with a waterfront view, live entertainment, gastronomy, libations and special events,” said Riverside spokesman Marcelo Goulart in a press release.

Yes. Gastronomy and libations are definitely the stars of the show. There will be two full service restaurants: Awa, which will serve Asian cuisine, and a high-end steakhouse. There are also more casual, grab-and-go options from Le Chick, Morgan’s and Old Lisbon.

Miami River Brewery will also be on hand, serving up craft beer on tap that is going to taste exceptionally good on hot summer days. Expect a rotation of small batch specialty beers, with signature and seasonal brews and local collaborations. There’s an outdoor beer garden for your lounging pleasure, but if it gets too hot — and if you’ve spent August in Miami, you know it will — you can retreat indoors with your drink and watch sports on TV.

You can arrive by boat, Miami Metromover or car (street parking is available for the brave-hearted and the lucky). Either way, Riverside, which will be open for lunch and dinner daily, will be waiting.

Riverside
▪ Where: 431 South Miami Ave., Miami
▪ Opening: July 2019

The richest people in America live on this Miami island

The richest people in America live on this Miami island

The richest people in America live on Fisher Island, a tiny barrier island between Miami Beach and Key Biscayne, according to a study released Tuesday morning.

Fisher Island’s 33109 zip code was ranked the wealthiest in the country, topping glitzy neighborhoods in Los Angeles, New York City, and downtown Miami. A Bloomberg study of 2015 tax data concluded the average income was $2.5 million.

The island stands at less than one square mile and is only home to 500 people, though the population represents more than 50 nationalities.

Many residents own property on the island, but do not permanently reside on it. Residents and workers can only get to the 216-acre island by ferry or water taxi, which prohibits unapproved outsiders from visiting.

In the late 19th century, the land was actually part of the Miami Beach island. In 1906, the government wanted to minimize traffic to its ports and dug a canal called Government Cut to create a channel between Miami Beach and what is now Fisher Island.

The island was first owned by Dana Dorsey, South Florida’s first African-American millionaire. She sold the property to real estate mogul Carl Fisher in 1919. The following year, Fisher traded it to William Vanderbilt II. Vanderbilt died in 1944 and the island was sold around a handful of times until finally being seized by the Fisher Island Club in 1987, who currently owns it.

Real estate can go for more than $26 million. The best spots include views of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skyline.

Residents have access to a bank, post office, grocery store, high-end restaurants, nine-hole golf course, 18 tennis courts, spa, and a bird-watching area – just to name a few amenities. One unexpected perk of the island is its mile of beachfront filled with sand imported from Bermuda.

Fisher Island is also the only U.S. zip code where more than half of all 2015 tax returns reported incomes greater than $200,000.

Silicon Valley’s 94027 zip code in Atherton was ranked second place. San Francisco residents in this area had an average income of approximately $1.5 million – significantly lower than Fisher Island residents.

Explore Florida’s special relationship with Brazil

Florida is a melting pot with a vibrant mix of cultures showcasing their influence in the arts and gastronomy. The fact that so many foreigners feel at home here is a testament to Floridians’ warm embrace of diversity — and Floridians and Brazilians have a special bilateral relationship.

Brazil’s contributions to this state have only grown in the past decade. Brazilian culture is already a hallmark of many institutions and art galleries. Our cuisine is served in many restaurants. Indeed, Brazilians participate in every segment of Florida society, including education, health, finances and technology.

When walking down Lincoln Road in Miami Beach or shopping at Bayside Marketplace, it is not uncommon to hear a different rhythmic set of words being spoken — that of the Brazilian Portuguese language. On Ocean Drive, you can order “caipirinhas,” the most popular Brazilian drink. In Wynwood, you can see the amazing work of renowned Brazilian artists, such as Os Gêmeos, Nina Pandolfo, Eduardo Kobra, and Pamela Castro. Along Biscayne Boulevard, you can stroll along sidewalks designed by Roberto Burle Marx, a celebrated landscape architect or appreciate Francisco Brennand’s giant blue-and-white tile on the headquarters of the National YoungArts Foundation.

Most of all, you can find the happiness of the Brazilian people reflected in the art pieces of Romero Britto, recognized worldwide as the face of Miami.

According to our estimates, 300,000 Brazilians live in Florida — the largest Brazilian community in any state of the country, according to the U.S. Census. In addition, more than 1 million Brazilian tourists visit Florida every year. In 2016, Brazilians tourists spent $11.6 billion nationwide. Miami and Orlando welcome the most Brazilian tourists in the whole United States.

The Brazilian impact in the local economy is huge. Brazil is a key trading partner of the United States. Florida is its main partner and also an important gateway for Brazilian companies and products into the North American market. Bilateral trade between Brazil and Florida reached $18.2 billion in 2016 and represented almost one-third of the total trade flow between Brazil and the United States.

Brazilian foreign direct investment in the United States reached about $24 billion, and a large percentage of those funds were invested in Florida, in sectors as diverse as real estate, aviation, finance, construction, restaurant franchises, and manufacturing of processed foods and building materials.

To reciprocate, my country is open to Florida’s businesses and tourists. Brazil faces some challenges at the moment, however, its institutions are strong, democracy is solid, and the fight against corruption is an example to the world. The economy is growing again and foreign investments reached the highest levels ever: $76 billion in 2016.

It is time for Brazilians and Floridians to take their relationship to the next level. There is great potential to improve our mutual bonds in trade and investment, as well as in cultural and educational affairs.

To launch this process, we will celebrate Brazil’s presence in Florida with a series of events during September. A Journey Through Brazilian Experiences, presented by the Consulate General of Brazil in Miami, will be a great opportunity for the public to gain a new perspective and enjoy Brazilian culture. Events will include bossa nova, samba and popular music shows, Brazilian cuisine, presentations by talent Brazilians who are part of the Miami City Ballet, renowned fashion designers, movies and plays, art and photography exhibits, street parties in Boca Raton and Orlando, soccer and discussions about tourism. For more information, go to brazilianexperiences.com.

Brazil will engage all your senses.

Miami’s Eight Best Spots to Watch the Sunset

With lush, tropical scenery and miles of picturesque coastlines, the 305 has no shortage of places to catch a beautiful sunset. And so, up next, here are the top eight restaurants and bars where you can, drink in hand, watch Miami in all its golden-hour glory.

3. Smith & Wollensky.
