Although you don't care about the US tech job market, 1.8 million Reg readers may differ (that's how many US readers visit our site each month).

But in America they only tend to have about 10 days holiday, compared with 20-25 over here, no? (And less bank holidays?). Plus what we take for granted on the NHS, they have to pay for.

most it jobs i see for normal engineers offer bugger all money
