Wow!  I believe the pay is equivalent to less than USD 40,000 per year
which is not even starting salary for an engineer in the US.  I'm not
surprised they are looking around the world.

Ah, jobs are located away from the shores of the U.S.A. because people in
the U.S.A. charge too much.

That's only half of the picture.  USA engineers charge exactly what USA
employers are paying.  Not all jobs can be offshored from the USA
either.  Narrow minded employers see cost savings as the only reason to
offshore.  It's a complex global situation.

If that were actually true, the US would have 100% unemployment.

It is actually true. I once worked in a 3Com factory. It was not
located in the U.S.A. U.S. companies find that labor outside of the
U.S.A. is cheaper, so they use factories outside of the U.S.A.

The U.S.A. would have 100% unemployment were all jobs located away
from the U.S.A. That is different than what I had claimed.

You said - and I quote ( the text is even in line above ) -

"Ah, jobs are located away from the shores of the U.S.A. because people
in the U.S.A. charge too much."

Again - if that were true, then all jobs would be located away from the
US. It's clearly not true for the vast majority of people in the US.
Even with bad unemployment, labor force participation is around 64% or
so:
http://ycharts.com/indicators/labor_force_participation_rate

What matters with jobs is not cost, but marginal product - for every
unit of labor paid for, how many units* of output do you get? If the
answer is "more than 1", then you are not paying too much.

*denominated in the currency of your choice.

Baristas at our Starbucks chain make close to $10USD per hour. If Scots
or German FPGA designers are working for $10 per hour, then they
are *paid too little*. This would also be true for $20 per hour.

At a rate of $10 (or $20) per hour, they would be paid too little if
and only if they are doing work worth more than $10 (or $20) an
hour. If I am forced to wait in a store because the staff is too slow
to deal with the customers, then I do not give the shop more money for
the extra time I was waiting there.

You can only compare salaries if you also account for cost of living.

Well, I don't know about US cost of living, but I can tell you the offer
is about half the starting salary for an engineer in Germany, and German
cost of living is roughly comparable to Scottish.

My understanding is that the cost of living in most of the US is as low
or lower than most of Europe.  Around a few of the major cities it gets
a bit high here, but then so do most major cities.  I was in Paris once
and when I looked at the cost of a small condo I realized I could never
afford to live in the downtown.

The costs of living in different places in Europe are not the same.

As for Europe and the United States of America, did you take hospitals
into account?

People who are careful in purchasing health insurance in the US don't
pay all that much.

Re: recruit FPGA design engineer in Scotland

"Careful"?  I'm not sure what that means.  I can't even get insurance
here except for Maryland offering the new "Affordable Healthcare Act"
policy.  In the neighboring Virginia and West Virginia you can't get
insurance at all if you have pre-existing conditions.

I don't want to turn this into an insurance debate, but the difficulty
of finding health insurance outside of an employment group is the single
biggest failing of this government in the last forty years. Well, except
for a war or two we never needed.

I don't want a health care debate either, but it doesn't seem
fair to blame the government. Well, we will have to see how
Obamacare works out, but before that there was pretty much no
government in healthcare. (Not counting Medicare and such.)

Most likely it will still need some adjusting, but it seems to
me that Obamacare is a step in the right direction.

All the TV ads about government bureaucrats making health care
decisions, (to convince people that government is bad), but I
would rather that than some corporate CEO whose year end
bonus depends on how many patients' claims were denied.

Note that Obamacare was modeled after the system that Romney
started in MA, and yet he is against it!

Had they opened up sales of insurance across state lines,
there's a nonzero probability that it would have improved cost somewhat.
How much is not clear.

I suppose it depends who the bureaucrats are!
I looked into one example during all that shouting how bad the NHS was as
an example of public healthcare. The bureaucrats (aka "NICE") published
the names on the panel deciding the merits of the treatment concerned...
Leading doctors and surgeons, research chemists, professors of medicine.
Not a beancounter or (as far as I could see) paper pusher among them.

Can your health insurance companies say as much?

From this side of the water, it's difficult to see what all the Obamacare
fuss is about.

I think this might give a clue:

According to a report by Health Care for America Now, America's five
biggest for-profit health insurance companies ended 2009 with a combined
profit of $12.2 billion

That can pay for a lot of opposition!!

As we tread further into a discussion we both acknowledge we don't
want... the reason we need the government to get involved in healthcare
is because that is the only way this country will ever be able to
provide healthcare to the full population rather than just those who
have the sort of jobs that provide insurance or those who can pay for
healthcare out of pocket.  That latter group includes Bill Gates and
Warren Buffet and that may be the full list. <g>

I firmly believe that the real reason healthcare is not available to
many is because it is for-profit based.  That goes directly against the
goals of universal healthcare because it goes against maximizing profit.
  The only way this country will ever be able to afford universal
healthcare is to adopt a national healthcare system like so many other
countries have.  But this will be fought tooth and nail by everyone who
has a profit motive in healthcare, doctors, other caregivers, insurance
companies, drug companies, etc.

Of course all the associated rhetoric will polarize the voters and widen
the schism already existing in politics.  I don't relish the future.
