What do you mean by " going for work"?

 I am afraid I didn't meet , as yet,  this expression in English and thus, I don't know its meaning. So, can't say if it is "por" or "para" ..

(probably  the Spanish sentence has a well defined meaning but, with my poor Spanish, can't say what is this meaning..

Hola Jack

When we say in this sentence "Fuimos a Mallorca por trabajo" (We went to Mallorca for work) we mean because of work, the reason why we went to Mallorca was work. 

I understand that it could be a bit ambiguous so I added to the English translation "because of" so it should be clearer now.

I hope this helps
