Re: The elephant in the room - stagnant wages because of the free movement of labour

"I already have a job, with decent pay, that I enjoy. It's the rest of the country I worry about, I'm not from London but I had to move here because there's really nothing outside, even in non-tech."

Plenty of decent jobs here in the north west (of England) - tons going around Manchester, Liverpool, Warrington, etc.

The main issues I'm facing here are house prices, roads and public transport.

There are now several companies that will hire you as a work from home dev (with a substantial salary) now if you are good - even big named companies based in the US.

Whether that'll be the case after 2019, we'll have to wait and see.
