UK used to be socialist until the 1980's. Our worst times were in the 1970's, when the daily news was filled with a never-ending stream of news
reports about wildcat strikes, labor disputes and all-out picket lines. Things like the Miners strike, the Toxteth riots, the Wapping dispute. Then
laws against union strikes were tightened, and things became more capitalist. Depending on your profession, salaries either remain high or have
The average British salary is £20K/year or $40K . But salaries vary from profession to profession; GP's (house doctors) can earn £120K/year.
Managers can earn up to £70K, Engineers/programmers can earn up to £60K, maybe double that if in banking. Getting Security Clearance can double your
salary because it is so hard to obtain.
More recently, foreign students were *paying* to get internships (£12K/year), and salaries had dropped. I was offered £15K in the UK, and was able
to earn four times as much in Europe.
