in reply to Moral Dilemma

Where did you get the impression that $30k/year for someone without much experience and in these economic times is "slave wages"? The internet and ICT hype are over. I know the situation in Europe and the US can't be quite compared, but I'm looking for a new position as well, as my contract ends 3 days from today. The market is flooded with people that have experience, big consultancy companies sack people by the thousands. And many companies with large ICT departments have a hire-freeze.

Anything that I will get above EUR 40k/year, I'll consider a bonus. And that's with 19 years of experience.

I think you'll need to adapt your perception.

    Then you might want to look for work across the border in Germany. I recently read an article by Angela Meyer in c't: Magazin für Computertechnik that the median salary in Germany is better--looks like a couple of thousand Euros more per year. You can have a look at the article here (it also has information on Austria and Switzerland).

    That's why I quoted it -- I didn't know if that was what it might be considered by others. I jumped for joy when I read it.

    I live in a place where most jobs pay 20.000 or less, so believe me, this is a breath of fresh air and a hopeful sign.
