Not everyone can work in Germany

If you want to make it in Germany then certain conditions must be met before you can work in Germany. Which they are, depends among others on where you are from.

There are differences if, for example, you are a citizen of the European Union, a citizen of the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland or you are from a third-country.

You can also get further help on this topic from the BAMF (Federal Office for Migration and Refugees).

If you need more information about the income in Germany you could also visit iamexpat.de.

However I can give you some advice:

If you intend to move to Germany and work in Germany, then you should be able to speak German before you come. Please note that you cannot learn German overnight. It takes time. And being able to speak German is almost always the requirement to find a well-paid job.

With my learning technique and my lessons, I can help you learn to speak German very well.
