Re: Who wants to work in the US anyway?
With a few exceptions the entire US is a bargain basement compared to the UK -- the cost of living is cheap. There's plenty of infrastructure, especially in urban areas. Jobs are variable, just like anywhere else. Its not a lucrative as it used to be.
The biggest mistake an English person can make coming to the US is not remembering that its a foreign country. Sure, you can more or less understand the language and read the signs (of which there are far too many) but the culture, although familiar in a way, is actually very alien.
